Groundhog,,, Whistle Pig

We have groundhogs around our farm. I have seen them beside the road but I have not been able to get a picture of one until today. As many of you all know we purchase the Farmer's grandmas farm. There is a groundhog that lives out there and is seen often but is fast. One day the farmer saw it climb a tree. I did not know they could climb. Well it has gotten use to seeing him and does not seem quite as shy. This evening we decided to go out and check on the potatoes and the garden of tomatoes, bell peppers, spaghetti squash and green beans. Our potatoes are really growing and are starting to bloom. We also have snow peas planted in our raised bed here at our house. We will eventually plant the garden here at our house to. But back to the story of the groundhog. We looked at the garden and we kept looking to see if we could see the ground hog. The Farmer saw it poke its head out of the hole that it has int he building out there. I got a picture of it there first. We left for a minute to go out to the pastures and see the cows and then came back by. Then we stopped and saw 2 of them in the brush pile. I was so excited. I got pictures of both of them.

  1. Oh Vicki, that groundhog is so cute! I can't believe he just sat there and let you take pictures. Those are beautiful potato plants. Good grief! No telling how many bushels of potatoes you will get. Love you Vicki!
