Winter Photos From The Farm – And The Snow Falls!

All in all – this has been somewhat of a mild winter season so far at our little farm in central Ohio – especially when compared to last years extreme cold and heavy snowfalls that seemed to drag winter on forever.

But with snow falling this past week, colder temperatures settling in – and another winter storm forecast for today – Mother Nature is still letting us know that Spring is not around the corner just yet.

We thought for today’s farm update – we would share some of the winter photos around the farm.

The Farm’s mailbox is covered in snow as well. The mailbox was one of our first pallet projects at the farm.

Corn Crib

The recycled corn crib looks a little chilly with it’s blanket of snow

Straw

The few bales of straw left in the corn crib are usually home to a few overwintering mice – just looking for a place to stay warm

Stake A Cage

The tomato stakes and cages sit and wait in the barn – out of the way of winter’s harsh elements

Snow Window

Snow on Grasses

The snow blankets our ornamental grasses. I love the texture of the grasses in the winter. We leave ours up to help provide shelter for many of the birds and wildlife that stick around through the winter months.

Snow Cone

The snow on one of the fence posts takes on the shape of a snow cone.
