Sheeping around

I have been so busy with work and stuff that the garden has been neglected and the two bored chickens have been given full access to the front and back garden – out of pure guilt, I must add. There is method to my madness though – I intend to rip out old growth and prune out-of-control perennials. So, let the chickens have there fun.

I have started cutting and mowing and have a pile of all this overgrowth taken to the back (back) garden …… where the sheep can have a feast!

[one_half]Hey – quit shovin’![/one_half]

[one_half_last]My turn now![/one_half_last]

[one_half]Enough for everyone![/one_half]

[one_half_last]Fresh mowed grass for all![/one_half_last]

These are not my sheep, but my neighbours’ sheep and they graze in the field behind our house. I call this my back (back) garden because we have a gate to this area! It’s nice to have these guys around when you have excess garden refuse. My compost bin can’t handle all this extra load and the sheep enjoy themselves!

What animals are you feeding from your garden?

Happy Gardening xxxxx

Neighbourly animals

Hi Chris, I wanted to introduce you to the neighbourly animals that are always part of the village. I am lucky to live in a Cul-de-Sac and at the end of our road is a farm gate where I have always wanted to wander. Behind this gate is a happy place where a handful of farm animals live and frolic.  Today was my day to introduce myself to them all! I saw my neighbour herding his sheep back to the farmyard after their day of grazing in the nearby fields.  He invited me to visit the animals. There was a Spurwing Goose – this is a rare find because they are wild birds. This one has become tame and walks right up to you. A bunny and chickens and the lonely horse and the flock of sheep!
