Krokus in the morning with red tin carrying and carrots with corn

Anna spotted the year's first crocus just before Groundhog Day, which might be a predictor for an early Spring this year.

We upgraded the supplemental heat in the refrigerator root cellar from a light bulb to a small space heater, which seems to be a better fit that uses less power. Its been doing a great job at keeping our carrots crispy.

The conditions here have been beyond muddy and required us to carry in sheets of roofing tin the old fashion way.

Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton make an awesome homesteading team and share parts of their day at WaldenEffect.org. They pay the bills by making and selling a new kind of chicken waterer that takes advantage of industrial poultry technology and brings it to the backyard chicken keeper.
