    Hi everyone! Billie-Jo here from East AL. I'm an old farm girl that is learning to start it over but in a suburban type area. My little family(me, boyfriend and 11 month old daughter) live in a semi rural trailer park. Fortunately we have a great landlord that not only allowed us to have a garden but had it turned when he had his done! This year has been a challenge with kudzu bugs and blossom end rot. But the season is almost over and now what? I am trying to get a few fall/winter plants in the ground, figure out how to build a lean to green house, and a chicken tractor(for the garden area) all by myself before winter! BF just had surgery so this should be interesting...lol I'm hoping to get a few hens(since they don't make to much noise) into a recycled chicken tractor soon. Wish me luck!!

    We dusted with Sevin for a while but we have had so much rain that it just washed it off. Tried to pick butter beans yesterday with them falling on me! Hoping chickens may help cut down on some of them. Who knows!
