This morning in the polytunnel. Butch has gone home! Things just didn't work out with him and our ladies. Betty, the Berkshire who should have been his 'wife' wasn't that interested, so then we thought a Middle White/Berkshire cross might have been a winner. Unfortunately, Butch had other ideas and hated our Middle Whites on sight. Before he did them any damage we decided not to push things and to return him to his former home. So now we are back to just the girls. The lovely ugly, brute that is Butch.
Betty will be turned to bacon if no purchaser comes forward in the next week, and the Middle Whites soon after. We have made the decision to specialise in Large Blacks and are currently searching for another girl and a young boar of a suitably rare bloodline, so we will have our own little breeding herd.
Elsewhere on the farm lots has been happening including the polytunnel turning into a re-enactment of the 'Day of the Triffids', put your coffee cup down if you dare and it will be covered over by a rampant courgette plant!
I also have a new 'cow', I'm making the most of it, Lovely Hubby says we must paint it green next weekend!!
I'll show you tomorrow!
