This is Bess. Forgive her for not getting up as she just gave birth to 14 piglets. Mother and all the little piglets are doing well. They live at Pond Hill Farm. It is an organic farm the likes of which this city boy has never seen. They have all kinds of pesticide and herbicide free produce, hormone and antibiotic free beef, pork (don't tell Bess), and lamb. They also have canned goods, soaps, and a lot of other things that I don't have a clue what they are. We went out in a field and picked our own strawberries. If you can believe this, they actually grow on a plant. Who would have thought? I just assumed they were generated in the back room of my local Publix. This country living has given me a whole new appreciation for a life I never knew anything about. You can check out their website, it really is a neat place. By the way, Bess's sister Peggy Sue lives at the farm and is due any day. Wow!
