It's Snow Season!
It's snow season and thus a time where I switch from shoveling soil to shoveling snow!
And it was a great time for my snowblower to stop working, yay! After a few hours, some disassembly, some intense struggle, and then using my little monkey brain and available tools (a handy dandy cable puller) I was able to manually winch all 250lbs of it into the back of my truck and take it to the repair shop.
Until it returns, I get to watch as the slightly warmer weather and subsequent rain help melt some of the inches away.
The hens and ducks are settling into their pre-dawn wake up and post-dusk turn down services! Additions like a bathing station, daily treats, and fresh dry bedding will all help them along their path to recovery and increased egg laying!
While we wait for nature to take it's course, there are always the Microgreens, Dragon's Balm, Dragon Clips, Wreaths, and Dried Flowers available!
And no cute kitty pictures as I gave her the time off from photo shoot duty! She went to the vet this week for her booster shots and wellness check up (all good and healthy!) and after all that excitement she enjoyed some peace and quiet without me shoving my phone at her! 🤣
I had almost forgot about the bathing stations! When they can roam in the summer, they always find the driest, fluffiest, softest soil to flap about and clean their feathers with. In the winter, with the wet and frozen ground, I bring it to them! This fluffy, soft soil was courtesy of the gophers who dug it all up for me (and the hens) under some old flooring that was removed.
One of my favorite ways to eat Microgreens (that isn't on a salad) is to use an entire small bag to make a bed of greens on the plate before covering it with a stir fry, scoop of casserole, or even pasta! Here I have a stir fry of steamed Red Kuri Squash from Hoot Owl Farm, Green Cabbage, Shiitake Mushrooms, and Roasted Cherry Tomatoes in Olive Oil. It might look like a mess but it is a yummy mess!
