The May long weekend was a busy one, with hot days and cooler nights, but still no rain. Much time was spent getting the irrigation hooked up for the blueberries, but time was taken to go pick up the Berkshire piglets.
After traveling home in the dog kennel in the back of the car (as Hazel watched intently), they spent the night getting used to their surroundings and pretending to be asleep (even when tempted by the smell of apple).
They seem quite happy now with their mash of pig feed and comfrey.
Hazel is enjoying them, and quickly remembered her perch on the old stairs looking down over the pig pen. Plans for the weekend include finishing their outdoor run. The kids at school have already started suggesting names (but they haven’t asked what happened to the last pig, Buddy, yet)…
