The Great Pig Escape

Read this with tutoring kiddos this week. About pigs who escape on their way to market as they don't want to become bacon, pork chops and ham.

BIL is a farmer and SIL keeps a huge vegetable garden. One year she put together an herb garden next to the pig pen. She watered the garden and she then gave the pigs a shower. They loved it and they loved her.

Come piggy harvest - after all these years on a farm - she had a really hard time with it. She moved the herb garden the next year.

That's why all of my meat comes pre-packaged. I would name the critters and become vegetarian!
