    I have a little raised square foot garden dedicated for my silkies! I have about 4 broccoli, 4 cauliflower, and 6 cabbage. I sure hope the chickens like em! All of the plants total just cost like 10 bucks. I can't wait for the veggies to grow! Anyone else plants veggies for your chickens?

    I sell veggies from the farm. I planted green onions, carrots, potatoes, mustard greens, kale, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, collards, Clemson clover, peas,spinach,& cauliflower. Also, garlic.Fall gardening in Texas is good because you get less weeds & bugs. Hopefully my chicks will eat good this winter & I will to.

    I am so jealous....I am getting ready for 10 feet of snow and -40 degree weather! [​IMG] Although it is beautiful here now...the leaves have changed colour and are falling and the weather is just right but winter is coming soon.

    I planted collards and lettuce plants for my chickens.
    I have them in pots so they can be carried inside greenhouse if weather turns bad.

    Quote:You could probably plant mustard greens & collards. They do good in cold climates. They also taste better after a freeze.
