Bye Bye Garden & Happy Chickens


Bye Bye Garden & Happy Chickens-
After record-breaking rain (over 1 1/4" Sat.) we had blue skies and cold weather Sunday. Perfect for ripping out our veggie garden. Everything went into the compost pile except the herbs and green tomatoes, happily inside...

more compost for the spring!
 
happy chickens in the newly un-fenced tomato area!

Whatcha looking at?

It loves the hot, part shade of my deck:) Plastic pot helps too...

Your pesto looks wonderful! And your chickens look so truly happy. I hope you get a long string of beautiful autumn weather.
