This morning I loaded up Big Blue the pickup with 8 bags of this local organic soil. I wasn't going to purchase any this year and meant to use only compost and the Mr. was to do a good tilling, but the excessive rain has made that impossible and time is running out...maybe next year.
The chickens lovingly offered to do some much needed weeding which they made quick work of.
Goldie, who is in charge of garden chores gave them the cluck of a job well done and said it was time to go, sit in the shade and get cleaned up.
This is the backyard that used to be grass. With all of the flooding, this was the highest ground and so I allowed them back here...chickens and really wet ground for a long time somehow make grass go away. Planting grass will be next...Whew!
Off I go to get my hands dirty, Yippee!!
