Looks like this will be the last nice day, 59 degrees before winter weather hits our northern Virginia area tonight. Cold weather means we have winterized our bee hives and placed the chickens into their winter coops with outdoor covered runs. Plugging in heated water buckets, and creating wind breaks are just some of the annual “winterizing” chores It’s a busy time of year for us but the prep work making sure our livestock are taken care of makes winter farm management much easier. I am posting a few photos of early fall so we can look back and remember the warm weather. Bye, bye fall….. Hello winter!
