CHICKENS IN THE GARDEN

     The chickens await late October when I open the garden gate. They do a fantastic job of tilling the soil and eating the fallen harvest.

  There are only allowed in for a short time, otherwise they will scratch down deep and find all the beneficials who are readying for their winter slumber.

It seems they thoroughly enjoyed the collard and chard that were still growing strong!

Note to self: Plant a CHICKEN GARDEN next year with  collards, chards, kale, dandelions, clover and other greens!



                                      happy day!

Chickens really do a great job of cleaning a spot up don't they? Yours look to be a lovely flock.
