I couldn’t ask for a much nicer weekend weather-wise. My camera broke yesterday after I got a few pig photos, so that’s who you’ll meet this weekend.
It was chilly the last two mornings when I went to check on my pigs. Everyone was cozy inside, sleeping together in groups and snuggled into the straw.
I kind of hated to disturb them, they looked really comfortable. And since I lost an hour of sleep last night, I was tempted to dig a straw nest for myself and curl up next to them.
But I needed to make sure everyone was well, so I threw out some newspapers for them.And they were well.
They got up, the hungry ones ran to the feeder, but most of them wanted to tussle with the newspapers.
This is Ol’ Yeller. Every time I visit her barn, she will find me right away and follow me around squealing loudly. I try to pet her so she stops squealing and it works for a bit. But soon she shoves my hand away and starts fussing again. The only thing that seems to satisfy her is a mouthful of my leg!
I was feeling hungry as I walked to the house when chores were done, and the wild spring greens looked so good that I had to stop and pick some wild garlic and dandelions to add to my breakfast egg.
I chopped them up and scrambled them with some cheese and two of my chicken’s eggs, and ate them with a side of local pickles from The Lititz Pickling Co.
