Pig Roast, July 2010

Last summer we went to a pig roast potluck hosted by the family who rears our meat pig every year. Local food, at a local farm, in the beautiful heat of a west coast summer. Doesn’t get much better than that, although petting chickens might be the topper for Bushboy.


  1. Love BushBoy’s chair! Sounds like a perfect day. That will help you get through the final cold days of winter. :)

  2. Knitting outside in a lawn chair = bliss!

  3. The first thing I noticed about the picture was that you are knitting. I’m not sure what that says about me. Or what it says about you either. :-)

    Having a good, local source of meat is such a treat. I don’t think I could ever move back to Vancouver and give that up. I have never purchased a pig, but I do get local bacon and pork cuts at our farmer’s market. I do buy half a beef and some local lamb.

  4. What a perfectly delightful photo of summer! The 1st thing I noticed, too, is your knitting! Pure bliss :) The food sounds divine.

  5. i love everything about this picture!
    the local pig meat
    the roasting (and eating) of a local pig (with friends – even better!)
    the chickens
    the sunshine
    and of course – bushboy’s chair!!

  6. Sounds like the perfect ‘sustainable’ day! And it makes me yearn for summer!
