I did milk again, much better to do in 40° than in 0°!
I now can go 6 days without milking if need be.
DH put out extra hay for the cows....then we made a library run....8 books. That should hold us. He also got some kind of diesel treatment for the tractors.
It is misting lightly here and no sun to be found. We are supposed to be in the 6-12 inch corridor....we shall see. It is the zero and below temps that I dread the most.
I did get some seeds in the mail today....then found a small pack on the floor that I will send later.....early wonder beets. Hmmmmmm
We had coneys for lunch with leftover cole slaw and a dish of my canned apples.
I have a Pikes Peak roast in the crock pot for tomorrow. We will get several meals out of it; it was a large one. Either this afternoon or tomorrow I will make a lemon pie (my favorite). I bought a bag of lemons on sale some time back and need to use them. I think this will be my last crust in the freezer............so will be making another batch soon. My sis thinks I can freeze the lemons whole? Got to check that one out.
I think all we have left to do is the get the blade on the tractor and I will feed the chickens some warm mash. I plan to leave the light bulb on in the chicken house tonight. It helps some.

This one is still in good health:
and this next one reflects an ongoing garden project....how to grow heirloom roses and this one and Baronne Prevost in particular.
