At minus 25 degrees F its hard to stay outside for long. Equipment doesn’t like the cold either. For loggers its better than rain and ice as they count on the frozen ground in winter to access otherwise wet and muddy places to harvest without damaging the soil structures. We have some snow cover, thankfully, so our garlic crop is protected. There are also places with running open water so animals can get a drink. The cardinals are still coming to the feeders! Never thought I’d see them year round in this area. Pretty happy!
Here’s a new option that we didn’t have until now. Easier to order and more economical than ordering a bunch of cartons. We put 10 bags into 2 cartons on a single skid that can be shipped by truck. And if you don’t have a loading dock they can be easily opened to remove the bags and you have two great storage boxes. Check it out at www.sylvacurl.com
The Northern Forest Center has a traveling show that features life and making a living in the Great Northern Forests of New England and New York. We just happened to hear from neighbors one day that we were in some trailer at the Barton Fair. What! No Way! So we took a ride up to the Stone House in Brownington to see it for ourselves. Yep. There we were. Bigger than life! What a surprise when we walked in an saw our picture on the wall.
Life up here is about the woods, the farms, the people, the snow and the winter. And the fantastic summer of long days and short nights. Camp fires, haying, swimming and working way too long! And a cold beverage or two at the end of the day.
