Winter on the farm

Spring 2011 will be Thistle Top's first year, so there is much preparation to be done in anticipation of spring.  There was a tilling (mis)adventure that happened later in the year than I would have liked so the Crimson Clover cover crop is still just a bunch of baby sprouts, but it's better than nothing!  Everything else is bunkered down for the cold and rain and will get double dug or tilled in the spring with a little bit of compost or chicken poop.  Here is the bed of future carrots:
 Baby clover!
 Hibernating bees!
 Future potato bed in St. John's.
