Unfortunately, on the last day of February, this year, my computer expired. For various reasons it has taken me until mid November to buy a new laptop, install a Slackware 14.1 Linux operating system and start work on catching up on the work I was doing.
On the other hand, the garden has profited -because that is where I spent most of my time when not involved with the technical problems.
Much has changed in the garden -although the underlying system has remained basically the same.
Fiestas are bad times for pigs -and San Roque's fiesta is mid August. Miss Piggy was bought to fatten up for my birthday feast in May -but she was so beautiful we decided to keep her for breeding. So, a week later we bought Dindin III. She is the third pig we have fattened -each one with the same name.
In early May, we decided to save Dindin for fiesta. A short stay of execution, however, this time her luck did run out.
But we had meat in the fridge for a long time...... Penny's family too.
Latte is Buttercup's son. In order to prevent incest, we swapped his half-sister, Polly, for Snow-white. Buttercup was on loan (in exchange for a kid) -however, because she only has one kid at a time (instead of two normally) we paid off her owner when we gave her back -so we can keep her kids. The owner has now lent Buttercup out to Penny. Buttercup is now pregnant again. We are not sure about Snow-white yet. Terri wants to take care of Buttercup next.
