That time of year....

The temperatures have drop to a cool 33 degrees. The storm front has hit the farm. The precipitation is a gentle light fluffy snow. The air has this quiet calm effect on the farm.

Throw another log on the fire. Curl up with a warm cup of tea and enjoy the evening...

On the farm... ๐ŸŒจ

What a sight to see this morning! We all know the snow was heading our way but it is always a matter of when, where and how much? Today, was the day for the weather system to head our way and lay a crystal clear blanket of snow down for us all! Some would say, winter is finally here with the snow on the ground. โ„ We can concur.

Here on the farm, we hope everyone staying safe, while they are driving. Staying warm when you head outdoors or curled up by the window with a warm cup of beverage and a good book! And for all those that are venturing out to the woods for the seasonal hunt. Stay warm, safe, enjoy the sights and sounds and place a meal on the table for the family this winter. ๐ŸฆŒ

Enjoy, this beautiful Saturday!!! โ˜ƒ๏ธ

Please be considerate...

It is still that time of year for us farmers to be bringing in the harvest ๐Ÿšœ, plowing the fields, working the fence line, moving livestock ๐Ÿƒ and the list goes on before winter is here. Take the time to wave at that farmer when you pass them on the road. Remember, you will be consuming something that they raised for all of us to eat, wear or utilize in one way or another. ๐ŸŒพ This is their occupation. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŒพ Thank you!

8 out of 9 woolly bear caterpillars agree it will be a mild winter. Severe or mild, they'll all be frozen solid under leaf litter anyway. In the spring, these caterpillars will thaw out, pupate within cocoons and emerge as adult Isabella tiger moths.

While there's no scientific backing to the idea that the banding color can predict winter weather, it's still fun to watch for patterns. Even caterpillars from the same clutch of eggs can have a wide variation in color!

While we have been diligently processing the tomatoes for salsa and spaghetti sauce. We have been preparing onions and jalapenos for the dehydrator. This is what is looks like after about nine hours! This will be good to add to soups, stews, cheese or to give as gifts later!

On the farm...

It has been a beautiful fall day outside! A little windy but the sun was shining! A wonderful day to be outside to do yard work.

Yea...right.... ๐Ÿ˜’

We have been inside all day, except for morning chores, processing more tomatoes and cauliflower! Canning this year is taking a bit longer than usual for us but that is okay. We did go outside to retrieve the mail, let the dogs out, dash to the cabin and just to take a small break. We, in a sense, did enjoy the day at one point or another. ๐ŸŒž

Back to canning, drying and freezing more produce for the long winter months! ๐Ÿ…

On the farm...

Processing the fruits of labor is still in full swing but before the sun sets for the day. We need to start hauling wood into the 'Ole Farmhouse! It will be a chilly one come 6am tomorrow morning! The weather forecast is predicting 28 degrees Fahrenheit!!! ๐ŸŒก๐ŸŒฌ Burrrr.... Better to haul the wood in now and to start a small fire in the wood furnace before the temperatures begin to drop! Stay warm everyone!!! ๐Ÿฟ

Today on the farm...

We are knee high in processing the last of this year's harvest! Right now, we are dehydrating apples! ๐ŸŽ Once the apples are dried. They will be stored in mason jars for this winter. We will use the dehydrated apples as snacks, add to oatmeal, mix with stuffing and be given as gifts come December! This is another great way to preserve fruit and enjoy during those long winter months!

Stay bundled up my friends! It will be a chilly one the next few days!

Today on the farm...

Found this little surprise, in the wood ash bucket, in the the 'Ole Farmhouse basement! Thought at first it was just a random stick that fell in? Then, after a moment's pause, the random stick seemed offly odd? Went to reach for it.

IT MOVED!!!

The random stick was NOT a stick but a very small snake. Which seems odd in a wood ash bucket in the basement? Now, we have had other reptiles, in the past about this time of year, find their way into the 'Ole Farmhouse basement. Just never a snake!

Not knowing exactly what type of random snake it was? We fetched a clean bucket to place the little snake in for further inspection AND to relocate to a more suitable location. It did not take much to transfer the little fella. (Not like an older much bigger snake which can take a little more effort to catch!) Once transferred. It was still a little hard to distinguish if it was a baby grass snake, garter snake or something else? Had no rattle that we were able to see or feel. We decided to go with your common garter/grass snake.

A little snake just finding a place that is safe, to call home for the winter months to come. No harm. No foul. Now, to see if we have a toad or salamander come back to the basement for winter?

**The little snake was the size of a quarter. Maybe a tad bigger but not by much!**
