I noticed toppled grains in seemingly random patches. A poorly organized attempt at crop circles? As I scratched my head, examining the circles of fallen stalks, heard hooves galloping towards the field. I looked towards the sound, which came from between grape vines to the east. Out came 4 hogs. They halted at the sight of me. I slowly reached for my phone, but as I lifted my hand to take a photo they bolted back in the direction they came from. I suspect they intended to romp in the field. Not this time!
Everyone’s headed up, including more blackberries.
