In my world
I put a deposit down for this year’s pig. We’re going to go with a larger breed this year, a Large Black/Old Gloucester Spot cross from Central Maine Pigs. I also have lined up my seed order with Johnny’s, my tree order with Musser Forests, and our onion order with Dixondale Farms. I think I missed the part of winter when life becomes quiet and there’s time to read and relax for a while.
