The piglets from both litters are all off to their forever homes. The barn looks empty and is much quieter! The big pigs have all been out in the free standing house for a few days- Hershel has been there for a few months, Purdy joined him when her litter weaned, and Ruby went last Wednesday. 

We had some great help in the barn today:

The big pigs have two jobs right now: to make fall litters, and to till/fertilize the garden! Their pasture area includes the fenced garden with the gate open, and we’ve been broadcast feeding inside the fence to encourage rooting. They’ve already done a great job on the garden, we’ll know in a few weeks how they’ve done with fall litters.
