Tours and flu

Just as a reminder we are not doing weekly or monthly tours anymore as we just do not have the time, you will see why in a upcoming post to show how many trees we have dropped making more land available for acorn fed pork.

Also due to the latest swine flu issue I do not want to take any chances of giving my very healthy piggies the flu, so stay away until further notice.

Project 365 Rosey's piglets

Rosey finally had her piglets, I think she had 10 but can't get in there to check as I always try toleave them alone for a couple of days, Mom is tired and we don't need her getting up and down any more than need be.

Josey thename we have given the Berkshire is being very protective of Rosey and has moved out of the house Rosey is in and in to a hut of her own.

Both seem to love all the wood chips Kevin and I put in there yesterday

Project 365 pain in the ass

When you farm, or at least when I farm I have very little time to do anything but farm, spending a hour or more to make a post here every day along with a picture, waiting for it to download, etc ect sometimes I just do not have that extra time. Having a camera with me when I am doing farm chores is another issue.

I am doing the best I can to get this done each day but I may have to forgo this.

My part time job has developed in to almost 40 hours per week and more stress than I would have ever guessed.
