kmom2468 is knee deep in the hooah!
Dinabeth’s comments about eating home raised hog reminds me of the year (20 years ago) when we raised up two feeder pigs on a friend’s property. They had an old pecan orchard that was old and no longer comercially viable. But the farm was retired, so they didn’t want to chop it all down at once for the wood. So we bought the hogs and they provided the pecan pasture, and those two gilts spent all summer “pigging out” on pecans and grubs and whatever else a pig could root up (they protected the trees, lest the piggies killed them). I tell you what, that was the best bacon I have ever tasted.
