Dylan has a new garden system which is a no till system allowing him to place gardens in previously unusable space (hillsides, etc). So far we have the flower and herb garden in the front yard, a garden for the kids by their tree house, a tea garden on the hill down to the barn, and two more gardens to be used for long season crops like tomatoes, eggplant and peppers. This will free up much needed space in the front garden beds. Hooray!!!
One of these garden beds will have a chicken moat surrounding it. There will be an electric netting "moat" around the bed which will greatly reduce insect pressure and greatly increase fertility of the bed.
The next time you're out at the farm ask to see one or all of our new beds!!!!
P.S. we need newspapers!!!!! Bring them to us!!!!! :)
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
