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.

Tucson Poultry, Pigeon and Fancy Fowl Show

Buff Orpington pullet #93 Reserve English
I went to the Tucson Poultry show last week end put on by the Tucson Poultry, Pigeon and Fancy Fowl club in Tucson AZ

Pretty much every kind of fowl was represented with over 1100 birds present.  My Buff Orpington pullet #93 was Reserve English.

Blue Ameraucana Hen Best of Variety
My 2 year old Blue Ameraucana hen was Best of Variety

Black Ameraucana pullet Reserve AOSB

My black Ameraucana pullet was Reserve Any Other Standard Breed (ASOB)

My Black Copper Marans pullet of which I have no good picture was Best of Breed and my old trio was Reserve Continental Trio. My Black Silkie pullet was Best of Variety. All in all not too bad for a beginner to the show circuit.  This is my 3rd year showing in Tucson and I always have a great time.

There is a costume contest for the kids to dress up their chickens

Lots of poultry of all kinds!


  1. Your chickens are so beautiful!
    Glad you have a good time

  2. Do you have any for sale? My daughter needs a bantam for 4h, it's her first year.

    Thank you
