Feeding time

It was feeding time today and the neighbourhood gang came to join in!! The yellow Weaver Birds are the most comical. They come and call me at lunch time when I have forgotten the time. The chickens have to peck quickly if they know whats good for them. These little doves come in huge mobs and can devour a chickens lunch in seconds!

Feeding time is always a big occasion at our house – the birds eat well and they give us such great pleasure when they come into our garden. Even the chickens don’t mind! I’m waiting for the cute Red Bishops – the males are in their fine colours now in breeding season, so I hope to catch a mob of them coming for lunch!

Happy gardening xxxxx

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.
