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

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.

At first I thought you had bought some sheep! They are adorable. I understand completely about having too much to compost. How nice that you have an easy way to get rid of the extra.

I was about to say: when did you get sheep?! I’m glad you explained it. 🙂

Right now I’m only feeding chipmunks (just waking up from winter slumber), raccoons (they sometimes empty the bird feeders at night), deer (they help the raccoons), and of course squirrels. It’s surprising that the birds ever get any seed!
