On Wednesday of last week, the activities included pulling up some sunflowers in order to provide room for the other flowers, getting worms off the tomatoes, picking tomatoes and green peas, and weeding the basil and tomato patches in the garden.
Maggie and Doug took a little break from the campers in order to start to make a chicken tractor. A chicken tractor is essentially a mobile chicken cage that can be drug behind a tractor so that the chickens can eat grass and bugs in new and exciting areas! Ideally some of those areas will be the area between rows that need to be weeded.
One problem that we need to solve before we finish, however, is how to design the sides of the tractor so that we can drag it over the curved ground of the field, but so that the chickens can't crawl out.
