I’m sure some of you guys have been wondering what ever happened with Ms. Porkchop. She was scheduled to go to the butcher this past Monday. Well, unfortunately for us, and fortunately for her, we were unable to get our hands on a trailer to haul her in.
So, here she is, enjoying another day and another watermelon, completely oblivious to her pending doom. Guess we’ll have to wait till we can track down a trailer before we can take her anywhere.
But you know… you guys are gonna think I’ve lost my mind… we are actually considering just selling her. Yes, after all of this work, and all of the lip smacking thinking of the good eatin’ we’ll soon have… we are experiencing a possible change of heart. (Key word: possible.) Not because we feel bad eating that which we have raised, but for Spiritual reasons which we have begun to contemplate.
Perhaps I will write a post on this soon, after we have learned enough to have an opinion, and I will open the comments section up for discussion. But whatever we end up deciding, it’s looking like Ms. Porkchop is here to stay for a little while longer!
