What an awesome start to the new gardening season and Tuesday Garden Party last week! I did manage to get through all the links (whew!) and thought I’d share some that struck me for some reason or another (though all were great reads!).
What I learned:
You can make your compost pile right in a chicken run and the hens will make quick work of the pile- seriously love this! Thanks to A Cultivated Nest, I have a new plan for our soon-to-be chicken run!
What I’m lusting after (OK, just putting on my “to-do/buy” list- whatever):
I’ve got two Hellebores that I love for their early bloom – but neither pack the punch of this bright pink one shared by Rindy Mae. Must. Get. One.
This chicken coop, run, and fence that belongs to Green Bean Chronicles. You all know how I’ve been wanting chickens for awhile, right? This is a sweet set-up!
What made me laugh:
Your comments about that awful “popper” weed I mentioned and the various names it goes by:
- Jumpin’ Jesus
Very creative- it’s so nice to know how many of you sympathized with my thoughts on this gardening foe.
And I did learn from Jo that you can eat them- which also made me laugh, ’cause no offense, but I’m not gonna do that. *smile*
