The Net and Polytunnels.
Inside the polytunnel as it is this year ...
... and as it was on this day last year.
Where are all the veggies .... the chickens have been eating them during their enforced stay undercover during the Avian Flu crisis over the last few months. Also sacrificed as chicken treats and something to peck at that they could find suddenly hanging from their tree when they got fed up with layers pellets and corn, were all my Purple Sprouting Broccoli plants from the net tunnel.
Oh well, it's a fresh canvas in the tunnels to start from now ... and the chickens have had their freedom since the first of the month so they are busy scratching for bugs, eating the last of the over-wintered windfall apples and rummaging through the woodland on wet days :-)
DEARHEART YOU ARE BACK, !ReplyDelete
Perhaps .... oh lovely one ;-)Delete
Thank fuck for thatDelete

I bet the chickens were so glad to be 'released'.
They were out of their gate like feathered bullets from a garden blower :-)Delete

We haven't had the "all clear" yet so my hens are still under cover.

Oh Sue - it's so lovely to see this post. I've been checking regularly, hoping you would be able to return and continue your blog - and here you are!ReplyDelete
My poor 'Egg Man' still has to keep all his hens in their great barn, because there have been further break-outs in the area, so now he can no longer advertise his eggs as 'Free Range'; I'm sure his poor hens are very sad, too as they used to roam in a huge field along with the sheep.
I do hope you feel ready to resume your interesting updates on all things growing or animal-related . . . .xxxx
'OUTBREAKS, outbreaks' not break-outs!!! Doh!Delete
No pressure...........but as you can gather from the above, we need you.ReplyDelete
