Raised Beds


In previous years we've either grown exclusively in the ground or in raised beds. Never both. Until this year. We have three large beds that measure 4 x 16, and one small bed that measures 4 x 4, plus a very large garden in the ground. Now my sweet husband has built me raised boxes on three sides of the chicken run. We've also planted blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and grapes. I love knowing exactly where our food is coming from!

Very nice! Just be careful you don't plant anything there that will creep into the chickens pen or they will eat it!

Great idea!

We are going to get chickens this year after all! Friends of ours offered their small coop and 4 Rhode Island Reds! So sweet!
