What do you do when it’s 95?
I have to keep pig-farmer’s Berkshires cool. Did you know pigs do not sweat? Therefore, they are very susceptible to over-heating. Their previous farm had a sprinkler system. Our sprinkler system is me, with a hose.
I tried to take pictures, but found it hard to hold the camera, try to focus it and spray the water. I think you’ll get the idea, though:
- Bert will drink from the hose.
Bernice prefers her back to be sprayed.
All of the animals are getting several checks through the day. Treats, too.
- Happy hates to be left out.
Early-mornings have been for pumpkin and gourd harvesting.
- 530 pounds of pumpkins to the local garden/landscape center.
Afternoons are for decorating and cleaning inside – thankfully, in air conditioning!
I hope my fall decorations help bring fall-like temperatures!
