Preparing for Winter at the Farm

Preparations for winter continue at the farm. This week, night time temperatures have started to plummet into the 20s, with some strong winds during the day.

To stay organized during seasonal transitions, we follow a schedule of tasks from one year to the next. Among these chores, it’s important to replace all the screen windows and doors with storm glass, ensure all the hoop houses are properly insulated, and cover valuable shrubs, hedges and garden ornaments with burlap. Winter officially begins December 21st, so the entire outdoor grounds crew is quite busy.

Here are some of our photos… is your home ready for winter?
