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.

More Progress

The girls admiring the new ramp into the coop
I had some extra days off and got a fair bit accomplished. I finished the second half of the hoop coop and moved some more rowdy boys in there. I just forgot to take a picture of them.

After I had finished the apron around the hoop coop I decided to build a ramp into the big chicken house as there is  fair step up at the door. I'll also be working on an apron all around the building to help prevent rats and other varmints from digging in.

Giotto signed the concrete
Of course Giotto had to be playing around and track up the fresh concrete.

 He has discovered that it is best to not even look at mamma silkie when she is out with the chicks tho. She has boxed his ears for him more than once.
