How is half a pig like a custom screen door?

Both are things we ordered in December that are just now coming to fruition. We pick up the half pig at the abattoir tomorrow morning. The installation date for the screen door is yet to be confirmed.

I will try to post a lot about the half pig. We're getting it in primal cuts so we can cure our own ham and bacon and make our own sausages. Tonight we'll be reviewing our Pig in a Day with Hugh and Ray DVD so we will be on top of our game! This is new for us.

By the way, sorry for the lack of new posts lately. We've had family visiting--good timing on their part, since the weather was idyllic! We've had a wonderful time, but not much time to spare. And now I have a deadline, arrrrgghhh...
