With August right around the corner, the purple hull peas are finally planted and starting to emerge. File under better late than never.
Our pigs continue to grow.
They like cooling off in their water trough.
They also like getting their heads and necks scratched.
And they like rubbing against the gate. It’s holding up fine for now, but when these girls weigh over 250 pounds each, I’m concerned they’ll tear it down. So I ran a hot wire to electrify it. Hopefully that will stop the gate-rubbing.
I took a break from tending a garden to admire some butterflies. They love these flowers.
We’ve had to get creative in our efforts to save our gardens from the deer this year. This is one of Cherie’s more elegant deterrents.
Finally, meet Rhiannon’s new kid. I never get tired of seeing new kids on the farm.
