minniechickmama, I really like that idea! Thought about trying it here, but one end of the garden is lower and every other year is under water for a bit in the spring. works fine for potatoes, squashes, etc but not for chickens!
I have an abandoned garden, but that would need to be leveled as it has raised beds and dug down paths from back when I worked only a half hour away and could do a bigger garden. these days....just tomatoes kale strawberries peas beans basil squash brussel sprouts and a few cabbages. the asparagus and rhubarb. sometimes a few potatoes. I kind of miss the days of the big big garden. would have family come help harvest and they would go home with a trunk load of veggies.
but it was give up so much gardening or give up chickens...and that was an easy decision!
Perfect day with the rain, boy do we need it.
Enjoy the day everyone
