Just as last week’s Christmas Day podcast was a rare one, so this week’s New Year’s podcast falls on the very day.
It’s rare for us to have a podcast on the very day of Christmas. Here’s hoping it’s a wonderful holiday for you, as it is for us.
The Longleaf Breeze Weekly Podcast is taking a break this week. We’ll be back Christmas Eve with a fresh episode. Thanks for your patience!

We’ve talked about this day for months now, the day we usher aged laying hens from the coop to the dinner table. Yesterday was a milestone for us.
We take the opportunity this time each year to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and to stop and celebrate all the blessings for which we are thankful. And this year we have a full list.
Here in central Alabama, November is traditionally a quiet, cool, pleasant month, when a light first frost nips the heat-loving veg, and then maybe a second one brings them down. November is also when we look forward to our first taste of frost-kissed brassicas like collards.
It’s the middle of November, and in central Alabama, that means it’s time to plan your fruit tree planting for December and January. That’s why when our friend and extension agent Mallory Kelley asked us to speak about fruit, we chose this time of year.
Oddie can’t participate in this one. Behind firmly closed doors in the shop next to our home, four tiny birds are exploring their new life, busily eating, drinking, peeing, and pooping. And sleeping. They spend lots of time sleeping.
Yes, it’s November, and yes, a killing freeze is surely headed our way within a few weeks.
