Winter has arrived at Many Hues Acres

This is what greeted us this morning.

Bees have been wrapped to keep the warmth in.

Nessie is deep into the snow & getting tired at this point.

After 15 mins of heat

Leah got to try out her bunny boots.
First time ever no cold feet.

These pictures are a little dated now, I forgot they existed! This was during our Autumn Olive harvest, during the rain.

Funnily enough, the particular tree we're harvesting in this picture is still loaded with berries, weeks after we picked. They're still edible, and if anything they're sweeter then ever. Looks like we'll wait a little longer next year befor harvesting!

Deformed Wings

If you look closely, you'll see two bees with deformed wings in this picture. Apparently, this is a Varroa spread disease that affects the bees wings. Very interesting to see.

Dry shed for the tractor

We don't need any hard hats! Chainsaw will take that post down to size no problem.

Hey look! A place for that window that we've had for 15 years! Hurray!

Telling the boys what's what.

We need that roof done now!

Shingles on, back wall up, ramp constructed. Bring on winter!!
