I honestly cannot complain about this mild winter.  Sure, I miss the snow for aesthetic reasons, and I know so little cold is bad for the parasite load in our pigs and sheep, but it is so nice not having to deal with frozen water every morning, I’m just going to block out the apocalyptic implications of it being 72 degrees in February.

That being said, it sure was pretty here on the farm on Sunday.

These pictures are the only thing that will remind me that we did in fact see some snow in 2012.  Even if it was perched upon recently bloomed daffodils.

Also, we all know that if I assume this is the winter that wasn’t and actually put something in the ground, we’ll get a late frost like central VA has never seen.  See, my laziness is something for which you short sleeve wearers should be grateful.  Or something.
