Calling The Pigs Home

You are so right...
we are definitely surrounded by beautiful land here.
Of all the places I have been,
I have to say that the rolling hills of central Pennsylvania is surely my favorite.
And there is no time more beautiful than late spring.

Last night's golden-orange sunset made the woods look autumnal!

Yesterday was another stellar day, weather-wise.
We mowed and trimmed and hung laundry out to dry.
Amanda was working locally, so she came to stay at the farm for a couple days.
It was great to have help in the garden.

We did a little weeding and planting.

Weeks ago I promised to get a video to show you how fast our pigs can run.
Each evening we call them in from the front pasture for their dinner...

If you cannot see the video within this post,
you can find it HERE.

And so, dear friend, it is Friday once again.
We are having guests today and tomorrow... a friend of Amanda's and
her two year old son are coming for a farm visit.
Then, on Saturday, I am heading to NYC with a friend to see a show.
Sunday will be a quiet day on the farm.
It's the perfect mix of everything, this weekend!
Hope your weekend is whatever you need it to be.
