There's not much else one can do but to keep going. Pitching a fit doesn't fix anything and sure doesn't make any problems go away. It sure doesn't feed ya! Our lifeline to the paycheck threw a fit yesterday tho. We've been nursing it along for a while now and it needed attention. So, Lucky didn't want to be left out and made sure to hand me a bunch of tools even if I didn't need them.
It's snowing again. This is by far, the craziest winter I have seen since I've been here. In years past, I would have already had a full window full of seedlings growing. Not this year tho, it's been much too cold and the seeds are not liking it one bit.
I lost another rabbit to the cold. Frozen solid, poor thing. Even with them being in the barn, the sub zero nights are proving to be too much for them. I need to look into a couple solar panels to provide electric for heat lamps in the future. Hard to sustain a supply of bunnies for the table if I can't keep them alive thru the winter anymore.
So, this weeks survival consists of trying to stay warm and carefully planning meals with the food I harvested and preserved. Fresh food from the cold crops looks to be still at least month away.
Yes, all of 2013 and part of 2012 are missing from the blog. You can thank Mike H for that. Almost all of those posts were about our great friendship and our partnership in farming. You all know how that turned out!
