Hampers and Cuddle Cups
On Wednesday I brought in the pigs' laundry hamper to the CSA to collect corn husks. Unfortunately, they've implemented a no-shuck zone around the barn. I mostly got just outer leaves. The distribution volunteers were kind enough to set aside husks that had pulled loose from the cobs. Most of it was not good for drying. Bummer. I'm going to try for husks at the Farmer's Market next week as long as they allow shucking on the Walpole green.
Anyway, the hamper happened to be next to the cage as I got ready to put the girls out in the yard, so I used it for transportation. Bertie was a bit confused by the surroundings and just sat quietly. Pinniped wasn't so foolish and immediately dug in. According to her, outer husks taste just fine.
