B&B homesteaders

Opening up a bed and breakfast was the realization of a dream for us. Our long-term goal is to be self-sufficient (we're well on our way) and to be able to share the earth's bounties with our guests.

The first snowfall of the season

The view from Brambleberry's front porch. 
We're finally receiving the first measurable snow of the season on Dec. 9.
Not only will it add to the beauty of the holiday season, but more importantly we need lots of snow this winter to help us break the drought.
We're supposed to receive up to 8 inches today and the photo (with the weird color spot in the middle -- not sure what that is) was taken in the morning while the snow was falling.
We spent yesterday doing some final preparations for the snow, but there is still not enough wood for the winter, so that task will continue. The sheep have been put into their winter quarters, which means breeding season is over.
There's always lots of winter recreation to enjoy around here, as guests can use our snowshoes and sledding equipment. There are nearby cross country ski trails and snowmobile trails. Last year was pretty much a snow-less winter and no one liked it.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
