    Just felt like making an interesting thread. So guys, what do you have in your backyard? Gardens, barns, big trees or something really cool (c'mon, beside your coops [​IMG])? I'd like to see (or hear a possible story behind it) anything cool you guys have in your yards.

    A BIG coop with a duck pond and chicken house, a horse corral with an extension for the goats and dirt. Goats are effective weeders.

    Quote:OMG I cannot possibly list all our breeds. Lets just say there are 48 or 49 chickens and 12 ducks, 2 dogs and 2 goats out there. Once in awhile I let Micro out to play with the big boys.....

    Three vegetable gardens(cucumber, eggplant, asparagus, peppers, tomatoes, tamatillos, corn, squash, zucchini, beats, onions, garlic, and radishes), a ton of black walnut trees, some apple trees, peach trees, nectarine trees, apricot trees, plum trees, a berry garden(strawberry, blueberry, red raspberry, white raspberry, blackberry, and in the summer watermelon). Two chicken pens, one duck pen, three sheds...

    and the interesting part. I got a streetlight(similar to this one http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl...&ndsp=31&ved=1t:429,r:16,s:0&biw=1366&bih=576 except the bulb area is not round, I'll try to get pictures tomorrow) and installed it in my yard at the end of the driveway. It lights up an acre like its the middle of the day

    A chicken coop & run, a shed, a lot of bird feeders, bird houses, a copper birdbath, an antique wagon (decoration), lots of wild flowers & perennials, and lots and lots of trees in every direction!! I'm completely surrounded by woods. Oh, and lots of rock walls too, all the way around my property and on my property, some of them very high on each side of the stone step path. I was told by my neighbor that the original owner who built this house many years ago brought all of those rocks down himself, using an upside down car hood with a chain. Dug them up, and dragged them down the mountain, using the car hood like a sled, stacking them over many years. They said shortly after he completed it he died. And now I just love those rock walls; home to bunnies and chipmunks. [​IMG]

    Other than the usual things like the dog's fenced area and the pig pen, we have a really old barn that's falling apart, lots of scrub trees, deer, and really tall weeds. Lots and lots of really tall weeds. [​IMG]
