Hmmm…from Friday afternoon when I could see a few patches of grass and was getting excited to start thinking about gardening…to Sunday morning…after receiving more than a foot of snow!

Poor Petunia the Pig is most certainly not impressed. Short legs make for an unpleasant walk through all of this fluffy stuff. Looks like I will be plowing some pig paths shortly…and the driveway!

The chickens don’t seem to mind it too much, although I suspect that they will hang out inside their coop for most of the day.

Well…a the farmers often say…we need the moisture….

Happy snowy Sunday all!

Great Post! I am always looking to find more northern gardeners. I have lettuce, tomatoes, cauliflower, onions, and others already started.
