Thaw it coming

Well, we had our mid winter thaw (actually it was a bit later than usual). Then, it turned around and dumped half a foot back on the ground. Boo hoo. :) Anyway, the new batch of peeps (we call them "nuggets") is doing just fine. There haven't been any more losses and they're starting to grow their wing feathers out (must be what the kids are doing these days) but... they stink. Oh well, this is a farm, after all. In other news, we've been approved for a "hoop house", which is essentially a cold greenhouse. So, pops is doing research on the best quality for the best price. Mom is "chained to her desk" (this is her season, after all) but, she still finds the time to help with the feeding. All in all, life is good and this farmhand is ready to get to the real work. Shoveling snow is boring. Feeding animals is year round. I want some dirt showing! This has been your HRNH update. Now, back to your life... already in progress!
