5 months ago, George, our resident Boar, became the proud father of 58 piglets in 48 hours (see posting of 7th October, 2009). George has been up to his old tricks again, but this time the 5 sows have produced a scarcely believable 62 piglets. Because George is a cross between a Saddleback and a Gloucester Old Spot the offspring of the Red Tamworth Sow are multicoloured – ranging from pure white to pure black with speckles in between. This video shows Sara holding one of the day old Middle Whites, followed by a clip of the Middle White sow with her litter and of the Tamworth sow with her multi-coloured brood.
The idea of Slow Life is to take the principles of Slow Food, which are “good, clean and fair”, and extend them to life in general.
Here in the Lake District, the air is clean, the pace is slow and the atmosphere is calm. If we don’t grow food ourselves, we can buy it in friendly small shops, where you know the quality is going to be the best.
This blog is a celebration of the Slow Life, with forays into the world of design, music, the arts, gardens, and my particular weakness, Japan.
