Our month has been full of cold, snow, wind and the like. Just what our winter should be in the Midwest. The ducks and geese are well, staying inside the coop most days with the door open for fresh air. We are still getting a few eggs, not three like we had been for so long, but an average of 1 or 2 each day. We did officially get out first goose egg. I was so excited! I have included a picture below of a store-bought chicken egg next to our home-laid duck and goose eggs for comparison.

I have included pictures of life here on the farm. It's hard to believe that in a month or so we will have calves and cows again. Eventually the lilac bushes will bloom and the sweet smell of spring will be in the air. Until then, I'll be bundled up in my jackets, sweatshirts, multiple-layered socks and doubled-up socks.

Sending love and Blessings to you and yours with wintry kisses from the farm.
