A misty morning today, feeding and watering all the animals in the semi-darkness. The woodstove is stoked and we wake up warm, with a pretty balmy 36 degrees outside. The ducklings cheep in their brooder boxes, which we made out of 3/4 sheet of plywood, a pretty good design for around 40ish ducklings. We’ll post instructions later.
Can’t see the sun yet, wondering if we’re going to get any shine today. This is the time of year when we reassess our priorities for the winter, and for next spring. It’ll be here sooner then you think.
The ground is wet and everything sticks to the soles of our boots. Time for milking.
