A few months ago, it struck me that after three years of kitchen scraps and chicken manure, the best soil to be found on our house block was to be found in the chicken coop.
So I kicked the chickens out, and proceeded to cage the veggies instead.
And I planted...
Apart from the existing lime tree, and the lovely ornamental potato vine (pictured above), here's what is new and growing in the coop now:
tomatoes that popped up
and of course, several as yet unidentified subjects.
The chicken coop garden is in the back right corner of our yard, and in winter gets full sun in the mornings, then dappled sun until the afternoon when it gets full sun again. In summer it doesn't get too much sun at all, with the poinciana tree providing dappled shade.
And that's it - the chicken coop garden.
Oh and the chickens! Don't worry, they got themselves a brand new shed to sleep in and are now allowed to free range in the rest of the backyard.
