    love the profile pic. is that the family pet, or are you raising it for...uh...you know...the freezer? Wondering how much space a pig takes. (in the yard not the freezer)

    Congratulations on Farmer of the Day. I like the fact that you have multiple bees, multiple chickens, multiple fruits, but only one pig. What's his name?
