Leaves and chickens

Leaves are everywhere these days.  As I said before, I get lots of them from my neighbor's yard. 

These will provide a wonderful mulch for my garlic cloves and will be reduced to practically nothing by spring.  In the meantime, they'll feed and protect the garlic.  As you can see, I still need to clean up the weeds along the edges of the garden, so that next spring I can plant the peas as early as possible.

The chickens are almost finished doing their thing in the garden.  We still don't have eggs yet, but I'm ever hopeful when I go out to check on them.

The garlic is all tucked in for the winter!

I bet your chickens start producing for you next spring when the daylength starts increasing again.

My garlic is in too mulched with straw. Your little chicken house is just darling!
