Garden Update

The chickens have been banished from the main vegie beds. As you can see, one at least ignores our decrees. Actually she is looking for a place to lay. Yesterday we cut out all the weeds from around the compost bin then Paul built a new bed and spread the compost out init before moving the bin. While I was clearing the weeds I found a little nest with seven eggs in it. When I let the chickens out this morning she ran straight over and through a gap in the fence we hadn't noticed then started looking frantically around for her sheltered laying spot that was no longer. Guess she'll have to find somewhere else (maybe even in the luxurious nesting box we provided for her)
