From this angle can you tell the produce is starting to catch up with the weeds? Believe it or not, and I certainly wouldn't blame you if you didn't, there is 2 kinds of onions, zucchini, cabbages, potatoes, sage, cucumbers, green beans, and tomatoes in this picture! The lettuces, spinach, turnips, radishes, and beets didn't make it into this shot. So all the hard work is STARTING to pay off.
I know it looks terrible. But hey, it's my wonderful mess and I can see the potential. It's not like I'm gonna have people standing in line to buy tickets to see my garden! But if they did, how would I classify the show? I would have to say, "circus." Come one, come all! See the mighty Hoosier Girl wielding her shovel and daring to raise her veggies with her own rabbit's poop! No tilling! No spraying! Not even a drop of pesticide! Watch as she hoists wasted goat hay over the fence to stamp out pesky weeds. Can it be done? Come see for yourself!
Back on topic- The chicken fence is doing a good job of keeping the little critters out of the garden. I was worried after other's comments about the shortness of it. But our chickens seem to be happy free ranging around it. I did have one incident of chasing them out. That was my fault for leaving the wheel barrow next to the fence after I had emptied the used straw out of it. It made a perfect jumping off spot. Lesson learned!
