Red, white and black? Well the piggies were not "born on the 4th of July" but they came to Lester's Flat today.
The husband is tired of the cute names and wants to go with something simple. For today at least, they are John and Mary. Mary is the redhead, John the big black spotted boy. I think we are going with only 2 this year.
I am happy to have hungry mouths for all of the whey from my cheesemaking efforts. The freezer is full—half with whey, and half with the pork from last year which is buried at the bottom. And the freezer in the old fridge (now in the basement as well) is chock full of whey too. We have been dumping it in the garden (supposedly good for the plants) and feeding it to the dogs.
Also pawning off the goat cheese on anyone who will have it. I still haven't mastered the art of making hard cheese, but am hell-bent on winning that battle.
Nice to have the pigs to suck up all that whey from my efforts.
Welcome John and Mary!
