Sunrise through Trees
I caught the sun just as it cleared the actual rock of the mountain but before it was above the trees. This view is looking east towards New Hampshire across our south field as I was checking litters in the early morning. It has been very warm and sunny the past week. We now have large patches of open ground in the fields. This is very early for us and it is without me even ashing the fields. Without the ash the snow melts to a large degree up from the bottom as we have little in the way of frost in our soil and the bright white reflects the heat.
The butcher shop slab is still covered in snow which is a demonstration of the insulating and thermal mass properties of our super insulated high mass foundation. This will serve us well in the future by conserving energy and keeping our electric bills low. Soon we will be unlocked from the deep freeze and begin construction again. In the mean time we’re working to get spring farm projects out of the way so we can focus when the weather and funds permit.
