A few months ago I told you about my garden floor--the New Zealand White Clover.  It's great for a number of reasons--it suppresses weeds, it conserves moisture, it pumps nitrogen into the soil, it keeps me from having to walk through mud.  Over the last 9 years it has spoiled me, and suddenly I'm having to do without.

A few weeks back someone dropped some chickens into The Farm.  I suspect the neighbors, since I constantly hear roosters crowing in their back yard, and the chickens run for their yard when I chase them.  But, of course, they deny it.  The chickens have completely eaten the clover over the entire 1/3 acre.  The trees suffered in the hot August without the moisture conservation.

 

If you want some chickens and can figure out how to catch them, please contact me: khunrob2@hotmail.com.  I need to get them out in the next couple of weeks when the clover starts to reseed.
