It may be March 1st, and the groundhog may have said that this month wouldn't come in like a lion; but it is definitely still winter here in Utah.
We had snow again this past week. Lots of it. We are still wearing layers and layers of coats and socks and scarves and boots when we work outside. Which is a lot of time.
We feel like we've done our part here to make Spring feel welcome.
We are butchering a beef steer this weekend to re-fill our freezer after a long winter of feeding ourselves (and the steer). We have a batch of quail in the incubator, fertile and growing and ready for Spring.
We are still keeping a close eye on all of those pregnant sheep and cows, waiting for individual deliveries. We are expecting an awful lot of Spring babies this year.
And I've been making plenty of Spring-themed jewelry and pottery.
