We got a couple new rototillers this weekend! I couldn’t believe all the colors they come in! I wasn’t particular on the color but it’s nice to have variety, so we got 5. We really need some work done around here! We’ve got tons of poison ivy and huge masses of grape vines that we really need to escavate. We have a greenhouse that we’d like to have up by fall but the spot for it would be a hot house for the poison ivy so hopefully we can get rid of it.
We were lucky to get 5. There was a disease that swept the nation of pigs, Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus (PEDv). It killed a lot of pigs so they were hard to find. It is estimated that 4-5 million baby pigs have been lost from PEDv in the U.S. during the past 11 months. You can read more about it here. The price of pork is also suppose to get ridiculous. But we all know how rumors go. We’re just glad we have rototillers for spring and summer and pork in the fall!
Here’s Bacon, Pork Chop, Sausage, Pulled Pork, and Boston Butt.
Yes we name our pigs! Do you? Why or why not?
