Weeding crew in training

I love to see a young man enjoying his work.

and a young lass.

The ground our young pigs are preparing for a late spring planting was once part of an old strawberry field as can be seen below

If you look closely you can still see the ridges for the strawberries.

Under all of those ridges, the black plastic, used in most strawberry fields, still lies in wait.  Until this young weeding crew

in conjunction with these tenacious little blighters

comes along.  The pigs dig up the plastic and the weeding crew collects it.  Just one step away from weeding our rows of veges.

Incidentally the young man shown here has already negotiated his wage for this job, negotiations with the young lass and our resident blog photographer are under way.
