out with the old in with the new


Today we got our new spring pigs and boy are they cute!

Over this past fall/winter we ran the pigs right at the north edge of the trefoil field and they did a good job at tearing it up and turning over a good bit of brush.

So today Brian broadcasted seed in that strip and Laura and I and the boys harrowed it up and to our great luck tonight it rained!! nice!! The boys were great and it was pretty friggin excited to be actually farming with my team here on Big Table!!

The picture of you and the boys harrowing, with Clementine maintaining the perimeter of the allowable harrowing, gave me a deeper understanding of your teamwork. Lots of information fell into place with that great image. Cute pigs, oh yeah.
Hugs,

Gloucester Old Spots, sorry. Clare is just so cool, I figured I'd better use heritage parlance. They are not GOS she told me, look at the ears. Ah, of course. They are so dang cute.
