We got two pigs last week! Now I have another outlet for all of the whey I’m producing these days. Brad named them Ham and Cheese. I love it. They are hilarious. The first day we had them, they were wilder than anything but within 24 hours, they were oinking with delight whenever we’d go out there. Now they frantically squeal when we leave the pen. I never knew pigs could get attached so fast!
In other news, the garden is coming along nicely. We had a late frost which set back some corn and green beans but other than that, things are growing. We’ve been eating lettuce and spinach for a few weeks now, which is probably obvious with all of the salads that have been on the menu. Asparagus, too. It’s been a chilly spring but whenever we have a few warm days in a row, the asparagus practically jumps out of the ground.
I have a pint of ranch dressing that needs used up. It was leftover from that birthday party we attended last week. The hostess accidentally made way too much and I offered to take some off of her hands. Woohoo…I love me some ranch dressing!
Hmm, what else is in the fridge. Not much besides gallons of milk and whey. More cheese will be made this week and then I’m going to stop for a while. I want to make sure this cheese gets good before I make a whole fridge full of it and realize that it tastes terrible!
