About Me

Fulton, MO, United States
I am living in the middle of a wonderful, small town. My passion is gardening. I dream of living on a small farm, just outside of town, and selling vegetables and eggs to those that drive by. This blog is to document the slow process of learning while reaching and wandering towards my goal.

Chickens as bug control

In late winter I put the chickens in my garden for a few hours over several days.  They have a great time digging for bugs and worms.  In return I have less bugs in my garden so far this year.

I still have the Japanese Beetle and the squash vine borer to battle but have high hopes that the chickens ate all the larvae for me.  Only time will tell.
