First Snow

Today, we woke up to our first winter dusting that covered the ground
The sage and Swiss chard appear to have weathered through it. After all, got to have that fresh sage for Thanksgiving!

Pax & El Jefe are in their element.

One more reason to be glad the turkeys will be GONE within a week. I hate breaking ice and slogging buckets of water.
Not enough to weight down the pine boughs or completely blanket the fields. You can't really see it in this picture, but our compost pile is steaming nicely...hence, no snow on the pile to the right. Ralph has yet to incorporate all the leaves into the main pile, plus we'll have some bedding and manure to add to the mixture once the turkeys are GONE. {Can you tell I'm ready for Thanksgiving?}
