    I made a chicken salad bar out of weeds I pulled today! I did it the other day and they pecked the stalks clean. Gives me an excuse not to do all of the weeding at once!

    I took a old plastic storage container and filled the bottom with dirt for weight, placed in all of the weeds I pulled and filled it with water to keep them fresh. They won't eat stuff off the ground if I toss it in, so this was the solution. Picky Picky!
