Hi all - Kim from N. WI (Spooner) here Wow - was not expecting this cold weather this early in the season! We'll make the permanent move from the Twin Cities early next year but it has sure been nice to be here all season to watch the orchard, the big gardens and our bees do their thing. Very light apple season this year but TONS of tomatoes and squash. Will wrap the beehives in a few weeks - closer to Thanksgiving. Just put the finishing touches on winterizing the coop/run. My first year with chickens and I've learned sooooo much! Glad to have fellow Wisconsinites to share in the insanity of living and raising chickens in a state with cold weather!
