What a month! We went from an unusually warm month of September (it was 26 degrees Celsius) to our first true frost (twice it went to minus 5 degrees Celsius) which ended the garden season. And this week we had our first snow. Everything melted during the morning but the signs that winter is fast approaching cannot be ignored!
The fall colours are virtually over since the trees have lost most of their leaves. The geese are still flying over us. For now, they still aren’t landing to rest close to us, I guess that will change as soon as the corn harvest is over, then they will eat the grain left in the fields.
This month in the barn the major project was to build new pens and large feeders for the goats this winter. Here is the first one we have completed. Great job Denis !!For now, the goats spend the night inside and during the day they are outside.
My personal project was to dye more beautiful skeins of yarn, mohair locks and to put together kits. (All are very popular at shows and make great holiday gifts!) Many are already listed on our website.
I also finished sorting some fleeces to send to the fibre mill this week.
I wish you a Happy Halloween, a Happy Thanksgiving to our American neighbours and a nice November month to all of you. See you in a month with more news from the farm!
