Aside from spending today with a charming group of sixth graders, I had some time to look through this year's Old Farmer's Almanac. Without giving anything away, there's a couple good reasons to pick it up if you haven't so far. We're heading into an odd weather year, and knowing before what to expect never hurts. 

This year's Almanac articles are hit or miss, at least for me, but the one on mating your chickens with garden chores is well worth the read.

Maple sugaring is about four weeks away, and I've been hearing rumbles of a poor year for sap running due to this strange warm snap we've been through, as well as the projections for precipitation in the coming weeks. As with all things, we'll have to wait and see and do what we can with what we get.

Have a wonderful week, and from our homesteading family to yours, cheers!
