Oh boy, I didn't think about how the FF could freeze in the wintertime; we only made provisions for keeping the water from freezing - guess I better get a heated dog bowl for the food! I would love your recipe, Miss Lydia. I am sure your birds are pretty disease-resistant with that garlic and oregano as a part of their everyday diet!
Haha, you must be pretty good and running a bird-circus :P
We are in eastern CO, just east of the Rockies. We live about an hour southeast of Denver. Our winters are extreme yet not - more like they are extremely unpredictable, because we get a ton of sunshine so a big day of snow will be almost completely melted the next day (or even the same day!) sometimes. It's fun, though - we don't have to worry too much about no break from the freezing snow and cold. Although we are supposed to have that "El Nino" winter this year...
I have 3 heated dogs bowls going in winter and 3 heated buckets one is a 5 gal for the geese.
We're on the north side of the mountain so our sunshine is gradually waning daily till in Nov we get around 2 hrs of actual sunshine and it is so far down it doesn't warm at all so ice and snow stay forever or seems too. Come End of February we start to see a little more each say then by mid march we're just about back in the sunshine. I have to take Evening Primrose oil for SAD . And have the daylight bulbs in my house . Sounds like we live in the North pole sometimes I feel like we do, across the river sun is shining over here it looks like polar ice cap. It is nice in summer though.
For my bucket of ff I use flax seed, oregano and spirulina powder and garlic and split peas before pouring the ACV and hot water.
