We had built a raised 4x4x1.5 high veggie bed for our daughter's playhouse, which is now enclosed in the chicken yard. Last year we planted pumpkins for the first time, it worked well but they quickly outgrew our space and rambled onto the ground. Our chickens gobbled up the vines and tiny pumpkins when the chickens started to get more brave about eating plants. (was our first summer with chickens). This year I'm a little stumped... We are wanting something to fill the bed with. Can anyone think of something that might be safe in there with them? I will probably put up some willow edging to help protect the plants a little bit more. I have some parsley I could put in right now, and was thinking of rainbow chard, kale and lettuce. But not sure if that is smart. Though, it would be okay with me if they nibble the edges. Anything that grows there will likely just be for them anyway, just want to keep it looking pretty. We entertain a lot, and it's just off the patio. We also plan to put in some blueberry bushes, salal, and Oregon grape and some grape vines along the fenceline. Gotta block our girls from digging under our fence into the neighbor's yard! thoughts? also have a small spot where we intend to plant two small 1.5x1.5 planter boxes. May do kale there too to give the chickens some greens to eat during the winter.
