Pig Parade

The pigs graduated to the woods today to make room for the tomatoes, which will go in the newly vacated, pig-plowed plot. Rather than risk the escape of 6 hundred-pound snout-o-tillers, we decided to enclose the pigs in their mobile shelter for the move out to the woods. Though a bit of a workout, it was fun to watch the pigs march along inside the shelter as we dragged it forward. And when we paused for rest, they quickly started tilling up the ground. Perhaps one day we will use them in such a way for precision tillage.

  The pigs appear to be very happy with their new surroundings.
