Now that it's cold this pig is coughing again. No throwing up this time. Is it because I feed them straight in the dirt? Or is this a BIG problem?

I live in Regina, SK … Zone 3
We can grow between June 1 and Sept 15.
I have been mulching like crazy. When it rains the mulch holds the moisture nicely, but when it dries out, it dries out the mulch and then it's hard to keep it moist even with tap water.
Last year, I planted into really nice soil.. lots of humus.... and it was so dry nothing really grew up...
I am certain that there are permaculture principles to learn... so I am asking for help on this...
It seems that on May 30, we need to hit the ground running, and have very limited growing time.. if we make mistakes the season is over quickly.
Any help would be appreciated..... thanks,
