Butchering 101

Helped butcher my first hog yesterday. He was a big one too; at least 800/900 pounds! 

One ham/leg was about 125lbs!

I'm pretty proud of myself. Not only did I not barf, but I didn't cut myself either.

Christmas wreathes

Walked around the farm today and scrounged up some things to make a few wreathes. 

I clipped some cypress and pine branches, and picked up some pine cones and monkey balls. At least that's what I call them. I'm not sure what the actual name is. 
I used some metallic silver paint on the decorations. This still needs a bow. 

This one needs a bow too.
