|The site of the chicken bordello to be.|
Currently the chickens are happy pecking away in the devastation that is our excuse for a garden.
I first need to have a general tidy up. The place looks a bit like a scrap yard.
There is the broken bench that they like to hold their knitting circle on. that is going to be taken apart, painted and repaired. Then it will be fit for tinyholder's bottoms and not just a chicken perch.
|the knitting circle will have to find new digs|
I am in two minds with what to do with the broken branches that had been cut out of the hedge last year. Should I break it down, bag it up and keep to burn on chilly summer evenings? Or should I just put it into the green recycling? The largest branches I will keep to put into the new chicken bordello we have planned. I don't wish the girls to be too put out by their smaller environment so I plan to build high as well as wide. With this I can put in a variety of branches and perches. Maybe a couple of high up nest boxes for them to lay in.
Then there is the Somme like garden itself to turn into a haven of growing. A good dig over and loosen up of the soil should just about do it.
|a courtyard to be.|
The court yard will benefit from a good tidy and a hose down and it is fit to go. In time the walls and fences will be utilised as a structure to grow things up. But with a tidy up it can be used as somewhere to sit now.
It's going to be hard work but so very well worth it.
