I have been encouraged to take part in the villages Open Gardens event this year - having not done so last year as we were away. This year's organiser, and great friend, came and helped clear the debris that the chickens had kicked onto the paving/lawn over the last weeks and more. Looked so much better after only two hours!
Another day and a half of pruning and repairing storm damage, along with chickens now confined to their run, the garden is looking OK. Loads still to be done but at the least the chooks have kept the weeds to the minimum!
What with many major sports events on this weekend - so I'm told - gardening has only been accompanied by croaking of frogs, bird song ... and occasional interruptions from chickens trying to attract attention.
