The fresh blanket of snow revealed a lot of critter activity. Seems we have deer, rabbits, raccoons, coyote and.... I'm thinking, but really hoping otherwise... skunks.
A ton of tracks.. all around the house. We are talking critter central. I have found 4 well used burrows one of which is right in front of the house.
I will be positive. Thinking good thoughts... plenty of game not far from the kitchen.
This is the well ventilated barn.
A highlight with such blessed air circulation is it doesn't have that pesky "old barn" smell. It might need a little TLC.. ahem.
Partially old design, partially newer additions.. you can still see how it was put together with wooden pegs, and where the "new" stuff used nails.
The beams are all hand hewn. The barn is as old as the house, so over 150 years. Amazing as much of it is standing, but not exactly safe.
Another bonus is it contains a lot of ancient carbon for me to compost.
This is the south field that is getting a little smaller. Lots of firewood to harvest!
More to come!
