Tigers in a Pumpkin Patch
Today Hope and I picked a few of the pumpkins out of the house end shed pumpkin patch in preparation for letting weaners in. That area is a winter paddock and summer garden.
Like a flight of locus the weaner pigs will mow down everything that I’ve had growing in there over the summer. Pumpkins, squash, beans, peas, sunchokes, carrots, lettuce, broccoli, tomatoes, millet, clovers and grasses.
While we were selecting some pumpkins for our table we threw some into the current weaner paddock in the next field over. They ganged up on the big fruit and broke them open quite easily.
