The lilacs have come and gone;
the Irises are even finished already,
and my garden is glowing in yellow sundrops and sedum now.
As you can see, my chickens are hard at work keeping my garden almost bug free,also scratching out some of the newly planted annuals, and they tried to get my early peas, which I finally protected with some green dollar store netting.
but Oh, well, I love those chickens anyway, and their eggs are so delicious.
I won't let them have my cherries though. I just planted this tree this year, and I want a taste, so I draped a net over and that seems to work.
The chickens and I share a love for the garden and so far we are making it work. I think this is the way God intended for a garden to function.
