I Should have KNOWN!

Guess who has begun to show an udder? Go on GUESS!   After all this backwardsing and forwardsing and shilly shallying about – it looks like Lady Astor is developing her udder for real. I am fairly sure now. And just before I was about to call the vet out too. With eight days to go …

Sizes

Everything got very busy yesterday. It was overcast and cool as expected but there was no wind so it was a perfect temperature for gardening. I did not get in to reply to your comments but I did read them, I so enjoy the Lounge of Commments and saw Juliana ask how big Sheila is. …

Knots Up

We did fencing yesterday. The middle sized pigs are pushing their fence  outwards as they race up and down chasing cars in a mad kiind of gaggle. My UPS man – who visits almost every farm and house in the area  -said he has never seen such hilarious pigs. They will knock each other sprawling to race the …

A Time to Bake

In the winter I seldom bake and almost never bake bread. If I bake it I have to eat it and you know how that goes.   But now it is spring and my workers are beginning to slowly filter in (more coming next week) so I have begun to wind up the baking routine. Here …

Pigs. Sleep.

This morning I awoke to strong LOUD thunderstorms, pouring rain and strobe lightening that flashes on and on and a severe weather warning beeping on the phone.  I merely note the severe weather warnings. They send them out for the most ordinary of weathers.  It’s a thunderstorm. Not an extraordinary  event.  If I did not have …

More Piggy Moves

Yesterday was another day of pig wrangling. I needed to go to one of the big farm stores to buy that solar panel but the little pigs were still in disarray so I could not leave the property except for one fast local run for feed. Somehow the little pigs had pushed through one of the …

Moldy Oldies

Frozen. All day yesterday my world sat like a large silent hesitant animal, softly freezing into place. Shiny and undecided. Waiting. Everything was crunchy with ice. I am leaving these gloves on the clothesline for the whole winter. I am not sure what the experiment is but we can watch them you and I. There was no …

In-side the cloud

Yesterday the warmth brought a heavy mist and I worked within the cottony echoey warmth of a wet cloud all day. The pigs loved the misty warm weather – they were outside in their field almost all day. The view from the clothes line – everything is gone. This is the view to the North. …

Weather as Entertainment

It rained a lot yesterday, so we all got wet in the morning, then the sun came out and it was hot and humid and we all started to steam dry the afternoon went by damp and breezy but nothing beat the extraordinary lightening show that we watched yesterday evening after dinner. Our county was …
