Friday after Thanksgiving is the day we always cut our tree. Luckily, Claire was home for Thanksgiving weekend so we got it decorated with her help. The tree farm is about 20 miles from here, up the mountain. It’s massive, but since I’m still using a cane, we pretty much parked and said hey, that one looks pretty good and were done with it. Normally we walk all over the place. Not bad for $28 (sorry too all of our relatives in FL who pay that for a Charlie Brown tree!)

Protected in our chicken tractor with a warming light and a tarp, our heritage buckeye chickens have moved from the brooder into their own spot inside the big barn. They have all of their big girl feathers so the winter shouldn’t cause them any worries.

Despite the fact that our temperature has been below freezing overnight, our ghost and habanero peppers are happily growing beside beets, carrots, spinach and buttercrunch lettuce. We’re trying some peas and potatoes in our indoor beds, too. We harvested beet greens and rutabaga this morning. I need to make a new batch of pepper jelly. I’ve been dehydrating the peppers then running them through a food processor. It makes hot ass pepper flakes!
