The chickens want to work in the garden! They’re always in there! Whew. Just when I was starting to worry about getting stuff done!

    They don’t need little hoes; they’ll scratch with their feet pretty effectively!

    They have little “hoes” at the end of their feet…and they are the most effective composters I’ve ever seen!

    I thought I had some broody hens forming because they acted like they were going to bite me and karate chop my hand off whenever I took their eggs. I couldn’t keep them off the nest, SO, I got a bunch of fertile eggs and put them in the nest thinking I would start building a future crop of egg layers. They (3 candidates) took turns sitting on the nest for about– 1/2 hour– each, then took off and totally forgot about motherhood! BRATS! Bummer!! Hope they don’t ask for a “raise” as their performance reviews in the “motherhood” department are found wanting.

    They make great little tillers…the trick is teaching them to STOP after the seeds are put in!!

    My little hoes have wiped out the snow peas that were about 2 inches tall. Its astonishing how much damage a single hen and rooster can do…and they have 5 acres to roam! Why must they hang out in my raised beds next to the house?!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
