    Yesterday my neighbor and I were looking at her overgrown garden area, thinking of how to get it weeded.

    I offered my geese and this morning we walked them over and closed them in the garden.

    Here they are hard at work.

    They are working when I am not out there. When I go check on them, they seem to think I am hiding Cheerios behind my back. It might take a few days to make a dent, but there are a lot of dandelions with leaves missing. [​IMG]

    great idea free treats for your geese and a great way for your neighbors to get their garden clean out. win/win for all involved.

    Is it true that geese will weed your gardens and leave the crop plants alone ?
