© 2010 FarmgirlFare.com, the bitterly cold (that's the official weather site description) foodie farm blog where some of us don't mind winter (you know I'm definitely not a summer person) and don't mind the cold—you can always add more layers or blankets, but once you're naked, you're naked! It's just the consequences of living in a shack during sub-zero temperatures that can be a little. . . trying.

The outgoing water pipes are already frozen solid (no surprise since they spend several feet out in the open air), this morning there was a thick layer of ice lining the bathtub (leaving the faucet dripping does help the incoming water from freezing), and with a low of -17 predicted in a few days, I fear that incoming water will soon be a distant memory. The living room windows are covered with sleeping bags.

But this heart rock that suddenly appeared just a few steps from the new living quarters
(hopefully we'll be moved in by next winter) is obviously a sign that somebody around here really does love this crazy time of year!


  1. Yeah. The frost is covering the north room walls. The freshly painted north room walls. BOO.

    But at least our bathroom is warm from the space heater. A cold bathroom is one thing I really, really hate.

    Stick close to that woodstove. This is the kind of weather that makes you just want to crawl inside of it, right? Or is that just me?

  2. I've missed the heart rock photos! Good luck with the water and hopefully it will get a little warmer for you. At least above freezing.

  3. yikes! i hope everything makes it through ok!

  4. I'm sure living in the Shack has its charms, but I am also sure you will be very glad to move into your new living space! Good luck!

  5. Surely I'm not the first to point you here.....peace



December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
