Pig in the Wood

pig in wood r blogAgnes the pig is also being useful- she has moved into a patch of woodland behind the Winter Garden- rooting around, clearing the weeds, and looking very content.
Only I’m not convinced the single strand of almost invisible electric wire about 6 inches high, will keep her in for long- although the pig expert in our family assures me that  is all it takes to keep in commercial outdoor pigs. (I think he ran out of wire to do a second strand).
The thought of that powerful snout ploughing through my winter garden, crunching through Bergenias and Hostas, Lilies ........let’s hope she stays happy with nettles and cow parsley.
