Pigs in clover

…well, grass, clover, thistles, blackberries, old straw, a stump, etc.

The pigs are at 8 weeks now, good hearty appetites, and lots more confidence around us. Here they are, to paraphrase Joel Salatin, expressing the pigness of pigs:

Bacon is digging, Ham is supervising

Ham needs to go wash her face

Good to the last drop

Are you here to feed us already?

  1. They are so cute. I have to constantly remind myself that they’re food. Then they do something like get into the garden or go visit the neighbors. It starts getting easier! 🙂

    • My younger girl (aka the bacon monster) keeps telling me how ugly the piglets are; when I asked why she thought so, she said she didn’t think so at all, but she needed to train her mind to believe that….

    Such wonderfully characterful photos, and so nice to see pigs just being pigs. Lovely images.
