Poppy’s nine are weaned. The fat little savages. The little piglet with the ripped hoof has become un-findable – she is running just as fast as all the rest and doing fine so I have stopped worrying about her. They are all eating well chomping on their greens and slurping madly at their egg and goats milk slurry.
Poppy is now down the back rolling in the mud.
Molly’s Eight are growing just like pigs grow. Yesterday, one of her big ones was seen lying into the bowl, legs spread out behind her, stolidly, methodically munching through her food. They are all eating lots of boiled eggs and home made yogurt with their grain mix and greens. I have let them into the back half of the pig garden so they can start to get to know Poppy’s Nine through the gate. After a few weeks all the pig gates will be opened and they are all going together – then the fun will start.
The meat chickens are almost grown they are drinking lots of full cream milk and waddling about.
Lady Astor is milking well though being very lazy and while I have her baby locked up for the morning she hangs out in the barn where it is cooler with less flies and watches the Molly’s Eight run in and out.
I spent yesterday planting eggplants, today we will begin to plant the peppers. The weather is mild and dry. A beautiful week of gardening ahead of us.
I hope you have a lovely day.
