I am at the point where my summer garden is just about done and I am ready to pull out all the old vines and plants that have stopped producing and start getting the soil ready for my winter garden. It's a daunting task since I have tons of melon vines in there and no compost pile to put them in. But it needs to be tilled. Luckily, I have great tillers... They were in chicken heaven! Lots of bugs to scratch up, green stuff to eat. Their crops were hugely full when it was time to go back to the coop this evening. I think putting them in there for a few hours a day for the next week or two should take care of most of my old plants. Hurray for chickens!
