Putting the Chickens to Work

 After digging up the potatoes, we moved the mobile chicken coop to that part of the garden. They will scratch and till and eat up bugs and pests, and also eat up the buckwheat planted as a cover crop.   Their work helps prepare the bed for fall mulching and improve the soil for next spring.  Free labor, gotta love it!
A few stragglers havent made it back to the coop yet.  Can you see them out there?

My neighbor said, "Come pick some apples off our trees!"  As you can see, we took him up on the offer, and I think we have a couple hundred pounds of apples to deal with now.  The fun just keeps on coming!
