This week was pretty exciting around here. Weatherwise, we had the normal mix of snow, sleet, ice, and a bit of rain. Par for the course for winter in Maine, I guess.
On the professional front, I signed the contract for my next book with Voyageur Press yesterday! I'm really super excited to get working on it. It's a book idea I've had swirling around in my head for a couple of years now, so it will be exciting to finally put something down on paper. We're looking at a publish date early in 2018, so stay tuned for more details on that. I can't share much yet, but I will in the coming months. I've also been hard at work putting together a few book signing tours for this winter and spring for my latest book Gardening with Chickens. I'll share those dates and locations as soon as they're all confirmed.
But most exciting, in attempting to trap a small fisher we've seen hanging around (Google "fisher cat" if you want to see one of the most hardcore predators on the planet, and in fact the only natural predator to a porcupine!), I managed to instead trap a neighbor's cat. The cat is just fine, but not at all happy about spending time stuck in our trap! I had baited it with some raw salmon, which the kitty didn't even bother to eat. That was one annoyed cat. C'est la vie. Live goes on at the farm. Enjoy this peek at our week.
