It's such a nice day that we decided to let the chickens into their chicken yard while we garden. They are in heaven. It is a shady area behind the garage that didn't have a lot going on. We seeded rye grass a few months ago. (Which we also use as a cover crop in other areas of the garden.) Around the same time, I came across an entire flat of Brussels Sprouts about to be tossed at a local nursery and planted those back there as well. The better our chickens eat- the better we eat. As Michael Pollen says, "You are what you eat eats,too."
