This Little Piggy

 So we have a new animal on the farm. Mmm hmm. Pigs. I have fought this one long and hard and yet, here they are. Actually kind of cute, but I do not like the smell!

 My miniature lilacs are blooming but the smell is gigantic. I'm so happy they were later than the bigger ones because I get to enjoy them longer that way.

 We also have strawberries setting on.

Does this look familiar? We tend to get rainbows right over our house. So pretty. And I'm referring to the book cover.

 Although these clouds looks ominous, it was really just a steady rain, not a big storm. Aren't they something?

The first peony bloomed yesterday. My goodness everything is early this year!

Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. Ephesians 4:15 NIV

Piggies are cute, but I wouldn't want them, either.

Strawberry blossoms and lilacs are beautiful.

Rainbows are are blessed.

I am sure there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!!!!

I LOVE the peony. I wish we could grow them here.

The piglets are very cute. They are such fun to raise too. How long will you keep them?

The larger the pen the lower the smell, Melissa.
We ran a farrow to finish operation for a number of years, 1500 to 1800 head of pigs year round, and the odor was not noticable, even in our farrowing barn. Our outdoor pens were 100 square feet PER pig, full rotation every six months, and the wheat produced behind the pens was fantastic! Best yeilds we ever had. - just in case you're looking for a sideline business =)
