Some of What's Happening Around my Farm

The weather here in the northeast continues to baffle.  October brought us horrendous Hurricane Sandy followed by a heavy snowfall.  It looked and felt a lot like winter, even though winter doesn't officially begin until December 21st, the day of the year when the Sun is farthest south, also known as the Winter Solstice.   And then today felt like springtime with temperatures around 60-degrees with tomorrow, more of the same!  My farm crew doesn't mind this reprieve one bit as they ready the farm for when winter finally arrives
