Thanks Jade!

It's nice to see that three of my pigs favorites (dandelion greens, kale and parsley) are near the top! It was good of your vet to provide you with this.

Erin, isn't every night "veggie night"? Or do you use the liquid C instead some nights?

Yikes! That is a lot of $$ for veggies!!

Sounds like you need a piggy veggie garden when the weather warms up. Last summer I grew parsley, dill, cilantro, basil and some other stuff around the border of the "guinea garden" and the pigs loved it!

That is nice to have the list posted, I forget sometimes whats best for my pigs.
One time at my supermarket this winter they had huge fresh dandelions greens- I bought a lot of them that week and they never got them in again. I was so bummed.
Parsley at my store comes in tiny bunches and it's so expensive I don't like buying them anymore unless I see bigger bunches.
I noticed Collard greens on the list, did anyone try them and do their pigs like it?
