a good day to be a farmer

Today we had piglets! Six of them, wee wiggly pink piglets, from a Large White sow and a Landrace boar borrowed from a friend. Super cool. 

They seem to be going OK but we're conscious of how much we don't know and how incredibly lucky we were last time, when it just all happened and the piglets all thrived. 

We're treading carefully and watching closely and hoping for the best. 

It's also raining. RAINING. Adam says if you put your head near the ground you can hear the grass squealing up out of the warm soil. You can definitely see the veggie garden growing! When it stops raining I'll take my camera out there. 

I risked the rain to get a newborn piggie shot, I couldn't help myself. 

It's a good day to be a farmer.
