Winter appears to have shown up last night. After several days of strong steady cold winds from the west that kept the sky clear and blue, last night clouds arrived with temperatures in the low 20s for the second night. Snow, apparently, is expected this afternoon — 7 inches. Good to have some moisture on the ground and some insulation as well.
Inside the snaps continue to grow and now have real leaves.
The compost pile is cooking along nice as well, maintaining a steady 105 degrees, and the red wriggler worms I moved into the pile to inoculate with positive organisms are expanding.
