Snow Day!

Last night the first big snow arrived along with chilly temperatures in the teens. I always enjoy the first snow of the season, I find it joyful. The ladies on the other hand were not at all impressed and needed a little coaxing to get out of the coop this morning.  I did weatherize the coop by sealing up the windows and placing a heat lamp close to the nesting boxes.

Here are the last of the raspberries.

While the temperature outside is about 22 degrees fahrenheit, it's almost 50 degrees in the hoophouse. Good for the winter greens.

And the signs of next season.
