Asberry Acres Permaculture Forest Farm - Chicken Tractor Is Done!

Admittedly, it took a while building it part time and still having to deal with rain. The work was easy but it was time consuming and tedious, especially tying down the wire chicken netting to the cattle panels. But the chickens are definitely happy in their much more spacious new home -- they're running and even flying around a bit!
In their new home. You'd think they'd want some space!
Oops, forgot the tarp earlier
Chenopodium album volunteer in my garden bed
And a quick note: while weeding my beds I found some Chenopodium album growing. Lamb's Quarters is a very nutritious "weed". Letting it grow out and may make something tasty with it!
