My Edible Garden

I've been gardening for most of my life and have been a devoted fan of organic gardening the whole time. It just makes so much more sense to work in harmony with Mother Nature than to fight her. Besides which it is better for the planet and better for our bodies. Here you can see what I'm planting and harvesting, with gardening hints and resources thrown in for good measure.

Ready for Occupancy

cement apron around coop

Well after making a cement apron around the coop to prevent predators from digging under it and hauling many buckets of sand and rocks to fill in the low spot, one half of the new coop is ready for occupants.

Fresh straw, a small roost, a feed trough made of half a piece of PVC pipe and a hanging water bucket complete the amenities.

These young cockerels are not quite sure what to make of all this extra space and new scenery.

In the meantime back to hauling more rocks and sand for the other half of the coop.

  1. Mary, glad to see the progress on the coop. Great idea to keep the critters from digging under the wall. Your young birds have plenty of space now. It feels great when a project comes together, doesn't it. Good job.

    Have a great coop finishing day.
