Dear Farm Journal,

It down poured last night and the wind was whipping something fierce today, blowing clouds and drifts of snow across the farmstead. It was not a day for outdoor work, but since I was inside all day yesterday, I had to get out for a little bit. Rufus and I made our way to greenhouse 4 with squinted eyes and pinched faces as the glaring sun, wind, and cold battered our eyeballs. Once inside the greenhouse, it was not so bad. The sun had warmed the space and the wind was blocked. The only real nuisance was the noisy flapping of the plastic as the wind beat it against the frame. We walked the rows and removed the staples from the plastic so we can move it to G2 and plant without plastic in G4. The ground is beginning to thaw, but we still need a little more time and sunshine.
