Portable pig pen with no bottom

                                                       April 23, 2012

      I have a problem with one end of our garden. The soil is poor and tough to work. I have decided to rectify that problem this year. I am going to harness the playful power of pork to help accomplish my goal.

      I will put pigs in this pen at the end of our garden. They can dig and poop and play. I will move the pen back and forth allowing the pigs to “plow” all they want. I will add straw, greens and shelled corn to get them to dig even more.

      The pigs will incorporate the straw, compost, grass clippings and their own dung into the soil. I will just continue to provide them with lots of material to root through. They will have a ball, stay exercised and happy, while building garden soil for me.

      They will be nearby to get treats from the garden. Corn husks, soft melons, a rotted tomato or two and young weeds will be eaten with gusto. I will be rewarded with manure for the soil and pork for the freezer. What a great deal 😮

      I have to believe that nobody “nose ” dirt like pigs do!
