It's Winter

The 21” of snow has melted and frozen into thick layers of ice or ice-topped snow, and the farm is deep in hibernation. I’m not sure when the ground froze this year (it was 65 the first week of January) but it’s well-frozen now and, with a polar vortex arriving this week, likely won’t fully thaw until late March or early April.

The amount of frozen water is impressive, I have high hopes for a full irrigation pond to take us through early summer.
