Recently a 50 lb bag of organic chicken feed cost upwards of $35. Since our half dozen chickens and a few more quail seem to go through 50 pounds in less than two months we found ourselves paying a high price for those eggs.
This September enters our pear tree stage right. In the past we dreaded picking up the mushed pears off the ground. No matter how much risk we took on the ladder, reaching as far as we dared, so many would end up in bad pear shape.
So here’s the solution. Take a kitchen knife out to the grange, slice up whatever is about to decay on the ground, and throw it into the coop. Watch the birds go nuts for the tasty treats.
Looks like they are all set for September. In think we’ll have Crab Apples in October. Now what about the other months?
