I end the week with a clean chicken house. Yea! MM and I hauled out a year's worth of chicken poop yesterday--probably seven loads of the garden cart, all told! It went on the garden in big, flailing arcs of the grain scoop. Thank goodness it wasn't real windy! I know this will sound odd, but for some reason, this represents a treasure, as far as I'm concerned. Free fertilizer...well, not entirely free, but certainly a by-product! Makes me feel wealthy!
This morning, I put in a fresh bale of hay and the chickens kept running in and out apparently amazed at this refurbishent. They must have been grateful because I've gotten more than a dozen eggs today. And there's been a chicken of one stripe or another in the nest boxes all day long --almost as if they couldn't believe their good fortune.
I'm sure they appreciate a clean house, just like I do!
Thank you everyone for your visits this past week! I've loved hearing from you. It's been pretty busy out here JOTOLR. For you, too, I know! Spring does that, doesn't it! I keep ordering plants and planting madly. Thanks for all your lovely comments! I've enjoyed every one. Hope you have a delightful and restorative weekend!
See you Monday!
