Getting their veggies is not a quick affair. It drives my wife crazy sometimes. I go over each item carefully to make sure it's cleaned and any wilted or otherwise bad parts are trimmed off. When I have to travel and leave them in the care of family, I make up all of the vegetables they'll need while I'm gone and put them into Ziploc bags with names and dates for each piggie. I'm almost obsessive about their food. I think it comes from losing Scruffy to digestive system issues.
Whatever the reason, these little guys enjoy their food and I enjoy providing the best for them. That's why I put in the time and why I decided to try and grow fresh things for them to eat.
It's been smoky from the California wildfires so I haven't been able to get him or any of the boys outside much. I've been trying to compensate by picking and bringing them all fresh grass but that's not the same as getting them out there to run and graze. There's only about a month or so left until the lawn goes completely dormant, so I'm hoping things improve soon and they don't miss out on the rest of grazing season. We have a dog again, so floor time has become more of a challenge. My dog is very sweet and doesn't mess with the piggies, but I'm not taking any chances that she mistakes one of them for a play toy. I'd never forgive myself if I let any of the piggies get hurt.
