Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

The Big White Out

This is what it looks like out there right now....

 Yep. So much fun.

And this is all that I can think about... I miss my lettuce bucket. 

The other day I had to buy stuff to make salad and it was about $9 of what I could have gotten for free in my yard. I miss my lettuce. I miss my basil. I miss going and pulling a green onion.

Instead The Big White Out of Doom is upon us. This storm is really blowing thru. Tomorrow the high may be 6* with windchills in the -20*. It's gonna be a crippler. No one will be outside tomorrow. I've already shut the goats in for today.

Currently the goats are in the Goat House. The only reason they are still there is because I had just taken them a huge armload of hay. We've decided to move them to the Turkey House later this afternoon. I guess a little more destruction is better than chancing it with a heatlamp.

My biggest concern - aside from them all fighting and destroying the Turkey House some more - is that one morning Dahlia got out of the Turkey House. I'm not sure how. But if she gets out tonite/early tomorrow morning then she might be a goner. Let's hope for once she behaves.

Chores tomorrow will be done in double time with warm-ups in the garage. Hopefully we will catch a break and it won't be so bad.

Happy Saturday everyone - are you staying warm? How's the storm where you are?

It was extremely windy last night, so much that the noise kept me up. We are looking at lows in the teens/twenties this week, which is really cold for our area. But not as bad as you have it for sure. Nevertheless, I'm curling up by the wood stove today and knitting. Stay safe, both you and your animals.

Over here in SW France the weather is not so bad, plus we have had a bit of sun to cheer us up. Hope the storm clears soon, hope the goats behave, hope you stay snug and warm.
