Today's blizzard

We didn't believe the weather forecast today, not after 4 or 5 years with no snow and hardly even a frost. The ground was frozen too hard this morning to dig out potatoes, so we harvested greens from the polytunnels instead (where our French beans, rocoto chillies, and basil have all been killed by this weeks cold), and the first few snowflakes began to flutter down around 11am.
Market garden - that could be the end of our chard this winter.

Thick snow in the farmyard.

Heading off to feed the chickens mid-morning.

Powder snow billowing into the packing shed.

Shutting the chickens in their sheds, having gathered them in from around the field, and wheelbarrowing fresh water across from the kitchen sink.
