Stormy Weather II
The cold probably finished off the mangel tops, which were providing good feed for the chickens and the pigs, but there are still plenty of the roots themselves which should have weathered the cold without much trouble. The carrots are likely finished, but the collards should be fine.
We spent some time this last summer getting the barn more warm and snug for the winter months. Mike finished all the doors and windows, and we have plenty of good hay and straw.
