Oh yeah, that'll happen. Luckily I was taking language classes at a nearby school, so my schedule was already synched to feed the chickens early. I've been gardening in some capacity for years and this is my experiment year to figure out what works best in our climate with our soil. If weeds crop up I pull or till them back in to fortify the soil. It's not ideal so I take all the help I can get. Tomatoes and potatoes are total gateway plants, believe me. I started growing tomatoes and potatoes this year and immediately wanted to grow more. then before you know it, corn and beans came in the picture, then melons...you get it.
