My homemade weedeater (for the veggie garden)

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

I know it's early, but my seed catalogs are here and I am ready for spring.

I do not know if many of you live in the country, here's a way to weed that works for me.

Thanks RIP!PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif
I have some active border collies that love to herd the roosters around the farm. lol

In the fall I let the pigs into the garden to eat any leftovers and work up the ground.
Then I clean out the barns and place wheel barrel loads of spent straw/manure into the garden.
I sprinkle the tops of the piles with grain and turn the chickens in.
The girls scratch and fling the piles of straw all over the garden trying to dig up more grain..................SO I do not have to spread it around myself. biggrin.gif

Now that's Cowboy icon_redface.gif I mean Cowgirl ingenuity PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif Of course I do wonder if your breaking any Labor laws by using your Chickens like that. Don't let a politician find out, he'll spend millions on a study and then pass a law against it

Thank you Smokeys! I've always liked using pvc, it's so easy to work with.
What I'd like to do is grow bamboo......Hmmmm, then I'd have a never ending supply. icon_smile.gif

Maybe you could sneak in a couple of hens.....no roosters though, they crow all day.

Naw it'd never fly! I had some rabbits, first 2, then 8, then 20+ - it was perfect as rabbit is my favorite meat. The neighbors kids used to watch them hop around and life was good. One day I clubbed a few for dinner and he heard it screach and turned me in for animal abuse. The town says only 2 max and they can't be for eatting that would make it "livestock.". What else would you raise a rabbit for? confused.gif

To turn it/them loose in your neighbor's yard and see what they did with it... tongue.gif
