you are seriously considering raising a pig so you can have bacon :)
And to go with that bacon, Keith is researching how to tap our sugar maple to make maple syrup! These are truly both his ideas (well, I jokingly mentioned the pig, but he really likes the idea).
Neither of us have ever really liked the idea of pets, but a pig is short term commitment that the kids could learn some responsibility from and see that our food doesn't grow at Trader Joe's :) And who doesn't like the idea of a pet that ends with bacon and barbecue!?
I honestly have more faith for a pig than a garden. I don't think I'd forget about a pig like I do our tiny garden :)
Just another installment in our transition to country life!
