There was a beautiful sunset over the hills last evening as we were putting the girls back out to pasture.
Here are mother and baby the following morning. BB is a sturdy little fella, and doing quite well!
It’s a boy! Britt gave birth to Beef Burger (BB for short) Saturday evening at 5:30pm.
Julie’s first Parmesan cheese, from milk she took from Britt two weeks before Thanksgiving. It is about to be put in to pesto, using her own basil and garlic too!
Then: We used the pigs to dig up all the canary reed grass and spring weeds (of course they helped fertilize too!)
Now: A gigantic and very successful garden!
Look at how fast our little girls are growing! Here they are after three and a half weeks. The top is Fiesta and Flash, below is Gertrude and Golden.
Conjoined triplets summer squash from Julie’s garden!
Then and now: 7 months later our pigs have gotten MUCH bigger!
Filet Mignon meets the big boys. This little guy is quite the adventurous one.
Our animals are going to be very sad when James goes back to college soon. They all love him!
