Come take a peek at our backyard garden on a beautiful spring evening! The chickens will help show you around, starting at their coop and the “coop garden” area. Then we’ll wander around the pollinator garden, and check out our many fruit trees. Last but not least, come around the corner and through the passionfruit arch, into the patio garden area.
Yes, it is possible to have a pretty, productive garden and free-range chickens!
I will write a post soon all about gardening with chickens, and the various chicken-proofing tips and tricks we use in the back yard garden. You’ll see many little fences around. This our way to keep the plants safe, and our chickens happy and able to range freely in the back yard. For more information about backyard chicken basics, click here.
As you can see, our gardens are much more than food for ourselves. We take great joy in providing food for the pollinators too! To learn more about the types of plants we have in the pollinator island, see this article: The Top 23 Plants for Pollinators: Attract Bees, Butterflies, & Hummingbirds! Many of the plants included are also used as companion plants in the raised beds, and in our front yard garden too! Finally, those autoflower cannabis plants sparked your interest, you’ll probably enjoy reading this.
Ready to wander with me?
