I love my chickens.
You know I do.
But, I swear, these gals make me crazy at times.
If you have chickens, then you will agree with me...
they can be the most destructive birds ever!
Put simply....chickens and gardens do not mix!
We have painstakingly (twice already this year) mulched around
our orchard and our 100 blueberry plants.
Because the chickens have removed the mulch....twice.
So, now we must do it again.
Hubbs had the idea to put a fence around the blueberry field to keep the chickens out.
I fear they will find the end of the fence and find their way in...
given enough time.
We shall see!
Chickens love dirt baths and will dig around the roots of an old tree to find fresh dirt.
We placed about a foot of mulch around the base of Job, our 200 year old pine...
in an effort to thwart this destructive process.
And the apple trees in our orchard....
So when I'm not doing regular chores, or seasonal chores,
or cleaning up after these chickens,
then perhaps you will find me doing a fun project like...
painting a new entrance sign, or working in our newly remodeled greenhouse.
I've even found enough time to make several new aprons for my Etsy shop.
Now, if I could just find the time to photograph them and get them into the shop!
Time....it's something of which I am always a little short!
