Oh wow...that is the most beautiful green landscape I have ever seen. Bravo on the good work. I come from central California which has more of a dry mediterranean climate. We only see greenery like that in February. Oh well!
Just beautiful pictures and your garden is wonderful. I have started letting my girls free range in the yard (which is much smaller than yours) and I am having trouble with them digging up the garden and yesterday they ate a geranium which I thought was a plant they didn't like! What is your secret?
Thanks for all your kind words! As far as the chickens eating blooms, sometimes they do, but most of all they dig in areas that I've just planted. It drives me crazy. The only option is to keep them in the run and they LOVE to free range. It's getting pretty hot here now so they spend a good portion of the day under the front porch in the cool dirt. They stay out of trouble under there. I put the chicken/dog drinking fountain by the porch so they pop out for a drink then right back under. So far they haven't eaten my veg garden. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
