2017 January Temperatures

I thought I’d do a weather/temperature listing by week – to see what the weather is doing here in our part of NC and how it affects our farm – the animals (Cats, Dogs, Chickens, Ponies, Rabbits), the edible forest(s), the garden(s) and us (Larry & Paula; family – Skye/Justin/Grace/Gwen; Madira/Chad/Camden/Charlotte; Sierra/Yoshi).

Missed the first week of January – but the weather temps did bounce around a bit.
