Frugal Fertilizer .......Delivered

April 29th, 2007 at 06:42 pm

I'm working hard to have a garden that is a true cross between Organic........and Free.

Here's a picture I took today, of the crew out back; Rocky (the rooster) and his flock of Ladies, busy at work, creating my absolutely free and most definitely organic fertilizer.

I don't have to go far to get my fertilizer...right out the back door. I'm currently taking a bit of the bedding from the coop each week and distributing it through the garden beds. The plants that are up already are loving it! I also rinse out the nesting boxes and use that water on the gardens too. Nothing goes to waste here!

The chickens have a 2nd job these days, like all the rest of us! Besides being in charge of producing all the eggs we can consume, they are taking care of all the weeds I can pull every day. Busy gals out there... Smile

    Do you have a dog? If so, how do you keep him from perfuming himself with the fertilizer?

    My DH and I were talking about how we hope to have a real garden and perhaps some chickens after we move to Texas ... But given the pooch's tendency to perfume himself with anything that stinks (the more vile the better apparently) I'm wondering how that works. Thanks! I love your posts!

    scfr: Yes, I've got a dog........most people don't think he's a dog, as he is a Chihauhau! Little guy that he is, all 4 lbs of him. He doesn't bother with the fertilizer....although, I'm with him whenever he is outside, due to the coyote population around here.
    My dog thinks he is part cat, he has the obsessive gene re; keeping himself clean. Constantly washing his feet, just like a cat!
