There hasn't been a whole lot going on at the farm since it got really and truly cold at the start of December. We've been enjoying plenty of time at the table plotting out our garden for next year, pouring over seed catalogs and tracking down sources for our COF (otherwise known as "complete organic fertilizer").
Here is one project I've spent a little time doing and will undertake more of this winter. We have a piece of land that used to be pasture a long time ago, and want to convert back into grazing land. In order to get there I have to cut down a bunch of scrubby trees and bushes. Here is a photo that shows me chipping the branches I cut for chip mulch on the big garden paths and for weed suppression around the bases of our apple trees.
