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.
