Winter may be long up here @longestacresfarm but summer is fierce and glorious. I never forget Rumi's wise words: β€œAnd don't think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter. It's quiet, but the roots are down there riotous." Summer is coming and soon we'll be longing for the rest and quiet of winter. Thanks so much to all of you for following us along on our takeover. Be sure to come by to our own account at @longestacresfarm for more pictures of well-behaved animals and poorly-behaved gardens. Have a great winter.

We are just about halfway through winter here @longestacresfarm. Slowly we will march towards April when the forests and fields will thaw and the great slushy rains of Mud Season will ease us into spring. Firewood processing for next year is already underway. Garden planning is nearly done and soon we will begin our seeds. It won't be long now until the hay equipment is dragged out of the barn and oiled up for work. Winter is always on our minds, even when the snow starts to melt. It's a 6 month commitment up here and an all-consuming way of life.

This is the newest addition to @longestacresfarm; Trapper. He, along with the unpictured Hawkeye and Radar, comprise our farm-dog trio. Hawkeye is a beautiful mutt who prefers the living room sofa to hard work but Radar and Trapper are Maremmas. These livestock guardian dogs are an integral muscle to the farm. They stay awake all night patrolling the boundaries of our 220 acres making sure no raccoons, foxes, or coyotes come through to bother any of our more vulnerable animal-citizens. We are out in the middle of a great expanse of woods and so we receive a fair amount of coyote pressure. It drives our city guests mad, but I always sleep more soundly when I can hear the dogs working (and barking) through the night. It means the farm is well protected and we can rest.
