Re: pigs as weed control
- Sepp Holzer (Krameterhof, Austria, http://www.krameterhof.at/) scatters peas or corn in the places where he wants to weaken the weeds. Pigs in the search of the tasty pea plow the ground. Then Sepp sow his seeds.

Im thinking about getting some pigglets to do the dirty work, while they plough the soil and fertilize it. After the weeds are gone or weak, I plan to use seed balls with Arachis pintoi, radish and pigeon pea plant to grow the soil fertility. Do you think the pigglets are a good idea, or anyone has tried this?
