I started composting the piggy poop and hay about 18 months ago, although I had been composting kitchen waste for years. Now have four compost bins on the go and some wonderful veg and flowers. I grow quite a lot in pots as well as the veg patch and drop a few poops just as they come from the bottom of the cage in each pot. The piggies eat the veg and process it ready to fertilise the next crop, magic!

Thanks! Great article. We have a veggie garden. I hope the piggies will be able to enjoy the veggies that they help fertilize.

Great idea! Unfortunately, my dog loves the piggy poo so it won't last long on my garden! :lol!:
