|Pigs being unloaded into the "pig" garden that we planted this spring. |
|Trying out: mangles, pumpkins, tomatillos, vetch, clover|
(Check this pig out...it looks like a white pig, but it's skin is black. What a funny color combo- especially coming from a Large Black sow and Tamworth boar (which is a red pig).
|Even weedy gardens taste good to pigs!|
|Considering a nibble of mullein.|
|Delicious mangles (feed beets).|
The pigs LOVE their new garden. When Colby did his last chores of the night he noticed the pigs chomping away in the garden well past their bedtime.
We plan to add many more pig gardens in the years to come. In the future we plan to grow turnip, rape, and field peas in addition to the pumpkin, vetch, mangles, clover and sunflowers we tried this year.
