Winter Chores at the Farm

Here in the Northeast, the winter weather has been quite erratic. The beginning of the week was bitterly cold. We got several-inches of snow along with single digit temperatures. By mid-week, daytime temperatures rose to near 60-degrees Fahrenheit, and any precipitation came in the form of rain - and lots of rain.

My outdoor grounds crew took advantage of the milder conditions and completed more chores on the list, including cleaning the catch basins, repairing potholes, and clearing various gardens of any late season leaves - it was a good time to make sure everything was in order before any more inclement weather arrives.

Here are some photos.
