What up flockstars!? So, after seeing my flock decimate the cover crop I planted for them as well as digging at the roots of everything and anything I had planted out there for my own enjoyment, I've decided to start doing a crop rotation of sorts. The local farmer cover crop mix worked well for the most part so I'll probably stick with that (peas, bell beans, vetch, barley, the inevitable clover that sneaks in from everywhere).
But... I'm on the coast, like right on the edge of the pacific ocean. The biggest problem I think has been the salt in the air, the exposure to sun and wind (the ladies are well protected). So any suggestions on what y'all plant? Particularly anyone who has a flock right on the edge of the coast. My grow zone is 9b.
Also... What do you plant for you enjoyment on the coast? So far jasmine has really been the only thing to really do well (the vining jasmine that has no fragrance). I also have rosemary, sage, and lavender and it's alive but just not thriving and HUGE which would be nice.
Thanks for any input :)
