* * * * *DSC_0086DSC_0083DSC_0087The Old Farmer’s Almanac is predicting that this winter will be a repeat of the last for us. After a very wet summer, we are now waiting for the other shoe to drop. We have gotten in enough hay to get through winter. Things have just dried out enough to get into the barn to clean and our sheep shelter has been dragged to a drier location. Thanks to the rain we still do have lush pasture late in the season. The tomatoes are still coming and we have harvested enough garlic that I can make Chicken with 40 Cloves on a weekly basis. But we still have not shorn all of the sheep (they must be dry to shear) and we still do not have all of the firewood split. It may be summer but my mind is on what’s to come. These photos are for me to savor later, mid February, when I’m missing the color green.

  2. Gorgeous photos. I will look at them too, when the season changes to bleak midwinter. You’ll get through whatever comes–you always have.
