The weather is changing. The cows are getting their fur coats. The ground is parched, waiting for the rains to come. The garden has been touched by early frost. The last of the raspberries are drying before birds get them. The winter squash and the potatoes are stored for winter.
The winter hay supply arrives this weekend. The cows and ewes are fattening up for their long winter pregnancy. They are ready. I am not!
