SLAUGHTER sounds so cruel doesn't it?

My wife is a hair dresser in the city and she uses harvest with for clients when she talks about farm life as it sounds so much more peaceful for the city slickers to hear.

Guess i can say I murdered a 300 lb pig yesterday and it was first degree murder as it was planned .

What will I get for time?

BBQ time , oven time and the best bacon time. :) :rolleyes: :p

When we do our beef and pigs, my 6 yr old grandson is always there. He is such a little farmer. He goes to school and talks about everything, so I told him we weren't killing pigs.....we were harvesting them. Thought it sounded better than killing or slaughtering.....especially around his teacher and classmates.

So yesterday we harvested a 688lb sow . Shes been around for 5 years but has failed to produce any piglets for 3 years.
Shes was at the end of her rope. Her spleen was 24 " long. Very long and not seen one that long before.
So weather predictions as Big Red (pig) tells it. For next 6 months.
Dec lots of precipitation
Jan lots of precipitation
Feb little less precipitation
Mar little less precipitation
April a lot less precipitation
May looks dry

She’s a big hog. I see the pressure washer in the background. We always wash them down before starting the process. Makes for a much cleaner job. Let’s see how accurate your prediction is. I think we will see lots of rain / snow mix storms this winter.

Usually just use a hose and brush to wash them down. Had some rain and lots of mud . Big Red is normally red not brown.

That's cheap you should live in HRM. I never watered anything and had a $244 bill.
WOW are you serious I get two 400 in greenhouse season and then normal would be like 160 each for the last two
You must pay that gutter /drain waste water charge what ever is it like my sister living up there do you
Cheers

You pay for water in and water out. It's ridiculous. Now they want to slap on a 6% increase in property taxes too. Assessments will be up too and they got a big windfall from all the deed transfer taxes. HRM is a money pig.

Yep agree same as my sister does up there From listing to Tim last night on the news the 6% has nothing to do with government so they will not help and the HRM will make it happen
Take care

All those come from aways who bought 100k + over asking price for properties are going to be in a shock when they realize how ridiculous taxes are in NS.

Maybe some but most IMHO they won't care
Friends sister just went back to Ontario Monday because their house sold after 6 months on the market sold for 1.2 million last week up there
The home they got here may have cost them 150K and they say similar so they have a lot of extra money for taxes Plus she could not wait to retire from the covid ward in Ontario :( to get back home after 40 years
take care
