Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Pigz = moved!

Wow what a show! We successfully got the pigz moved to their new location yesterday - but only because the Good Neighbor Kids helped us. They were amazing and we could not have done it with out them. More on that later but check out the porkers - happily installed in their new spot:

Pigz lovin' their new place

I'm so glad they are moved! Now they are out of sight and out of smell-range. However, now they are further away so its a hike down there...and we need to get another hose to reach their new Pig-Topia.

The only problem so far is that Kai keeps seeing "something" in the woods and has her woofer on full blast. Then she has to run down there and make sure its really "our" pigz and not something else. There has been a lot of barking.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Congrats on a successful move, they look quite content laying there with a nice bowl of slop.:) Hope Kai is able to keep the big bad wolf away.

Sounds like it was a relatively uneventful move...Bummer!

We would have loved a good pig story! :)

Glad it wasn't as eventful as the last time! BTW, I have been following your posts for a couple of months now and I love your blog. When I first found it, I read the first couple of years worth over a weeks time. I have learned so much from you. I discovered you on BYC before I got my first batch of chickies (that are 5 weeks old now).

Are you SURE it is Kai and not one of the posse?

Hi Contadina! Great to see you!!

Well, TAPG, I didn't say there was NO story... heh heh heh.. the tale will be told. Lets just say that no body died so it all ended well.
