We have piggies in our back yard! On Labor Day we picked up two female weaners/feeders to raise over the winter on our garden plot. This brilliant scheme was suggested by our friend Kent (the same fellow who sold us our beloved tractor). Over the course of the winter they will root up, hog down, and poop all over our garden. More entertaining than a cover crop, and tastier, too! Yes, as cute as they are now these ladies will have a date with the butcher when its time to replant the vegetable patch.
