Say hello to GardenSnob's newest residents!
That's Sweet, Sour and Spicy, our temporary residents on the farm. One for us, one for the beef farmer around the corner, and one for a friend. Uh oh, did you think this was only about vegetables and pretty flowers? Well, we grow vegetables and have lots of extras in the summer. With mucking out the barn for the chickens and goats, summitting the compost pile now means a day hike. It sure is nice to have somewhere else to put the surplus vegetables and weeds. Pigs love vegetables, and as you have heard, "you are what you eat". To stretch this logic to the snapping point, the vegetable eating pigs could be considered vegetables themselves and if we eat the pigs, I suppose we are really eating vegetables, not pigs. At any rate, they are great to have around and we treat them well. Stay tuned for more pictures of pigs having fun this summer! If you can't wait that long, this Adam Hersh poster of a pig family outing (Amazon $3.99) will do nicely.
