not piglets anymore!

remember the cute little piglets we had before? Well not anymore! Here they are with a loaf of Atwaters bread:
And they are really clearing the ground quickly now:
Every spot where they gouge deeply Homer plants a few seeds. And adds a little compost to it.
It is warm enough now that the seeds germinate quite quickly, and there is still enough time before frost that we will be able to harvest this fall. We hope the bugs that eat these squash, pumpkins, watermelons and cantaloupe don't find them. We have read that seeding after the 4th of July helps miss bugs that eat thiese plants, as they have an earlier cycle of life. We are testing to see if that happens.
