I'm having a hard time adapting to the frigid weather here. How do you Midwestern and Northern folks manage to stay warm while working on the farm? My toes and fingers feel like they're going to fall off by the time I get back inside.?

I've lived in the northeast my whole life. All I can say is that you have to dress warm. Dress in layers and wear insulated work gloves. If your toes are cold get thermal socks. As long as it's not windy, the cold doesn't bother me. It's a lot more difficult to keep warm when it's cold AND windy, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

We grow extra capillaries in our extremeties and put on "brown fat" (look it up,it's interesting)! Give it a while and you'll adapt.
