Well done! :) With you on the neighbour being not-very-helpful, gosh, that would seriously tick me off too!

According to the truck scales, freakin WOOOW!!! Wilbur weighed 820 pounds!! Having a hard time wrapping my brain around that! BJ says that’s right because Wilbur is huge. Still can’t believe it! Waiting on hanging weight to compare to 820 pounds! I just don't think he weighs THAT much!

Pigs are surprisingly heavy for their stature , I usually underestimate them too! That's a lotta meat!

We have two freezers. One is stuffed full, the other is maybe 2/3 empty. That’s why I’ve been rendering lard! And making broth from the chicken feet, making room! Going to put some roast and chicken in DD’s woefully small refrigerator freezer. And we have almost 2 weeks to eat a lot of meat!
