    That will sure be some rich soil once it all composts! Do you plant crops for the pigs? I'm thinking turnips.

    Only container garden this year. Been stretched out too thin with time and effort.
    This was actually the first year we slacked off. My husband had reconstruction surgery with screws just before this season and he is the driving force. He was "man down"! for a bit.
    He usually fences a new area, puts in 3 or more pigs to root/till/fertilize prior to a garden sow.
    Then when the garden peters out and we are done with reap, stick more piggies back in to clean out the aftermath.
    They are the poor man farmer's cheap labor hands!
    Plus shovel in some goat poo before grass seeds.
    During our Rainey season growth is out of control.
    I busted a month old deck belt yesterday. My husband says... " when the grass is tall go over it twice on 2 different cut heights. When it is really tall, 3 heights". I didn't take his advice yesterday and heated up and busted the belt. You could smell the rubber melting.
    I gave him a couple of ice cold beers when he got home before I told him. I got the look... But not the talk! Haha.

    We got a break in the rain the last few days. Only 2" in 5 days! So I have been busy with sales. No rain = phone calls for sales,
    Rain = more feed and meds and people don't venture out to wet farms to buy animals while holding an umbrella!
    Sales are up so my posts are down!
    I am still reading before bedtime though.
    :)

    Thanks! We are slowly. We need Sun to help evaporate some to speed up the process.
    Yesterday my better half came home by 4.
    At 4:30 he was hand shovelling tree service mulch into our feeder pigs pen.
    At 6:30 I told him dinner was ready and asked when he would be done.
    He replied "When I can see the pigs hoofs again".
    I was in bed at 11 0'clock when I heard the microwave beeping. I guess he got to see the pigs feet finally! HaHa!
    This coming Saturday we are bringing them to our processor.
    We are going to remove the fencing and posts to relocate that pen in a fresher area. Spread grass seed and rest the soil for a long time. Too low lined of an area. It is now a retention pond more than a swine pen.

    Mottled Java, Barred rocks and our cross bred hub named Sunflowers.
    Here is a photo of what the look like once matured. Cell phone pic doesn't do the beauty any justice. Beautiful feather patterns.

    I like the name sunflowers. It suits them.
