Farm work

This morning I worked with the pigs on moving dirt. The pigs churned up a bunch of dirt along a line of gorse (gorse is an invasive from England that was originally brought in for hedges, but went crazy in this climate). The goats had already done a number on the gorse, and the pigs were busy rooting around. I would move some of the dirt to the garden and the pigs would do more rooting. They found some big worms (1/2 inch diameter and 12 to 18 inches long). I have some picture that I hope to post some day!

This afternoon, worked on removing some fences in the paddock, that we will be putting up tomorrow in some different spots. I'm really working for my room and board!
