100 feet to clear of snow to the chicken coop cum compound…
… or 1/4 mile up an unplowed dirt road and then 1/4 up the hill – plowing as you go, and don’t forget the gates – to bring hay to the cattle?
Makes you appreciate all the hard physical labor, planning, resourcefulness & ingenuity it takes to be successful farmer.
Also makes one appreciate much better why so many of the old farm houses are pretty close to the road (not 1/2 mile over a remote hill) and the tightness and efficiency of how the buildings were grouped.
More snow is falling sow, fat flakes falling straight. We certainly have had precipitations this winter – the winter I decide to leave the dahlias undug outside. Let’s hope for an abundant morel season come April (will be somewhat of a consolation from having to buy so many new dahlia tubers…)
