|Chickens amongst the mustard greens|
The patch I grew only covered about a quarter of the old yard--a little bit of the yard is paved, and elsewhere holds some shrubs; however, there are still some bare spots where my seed broadcasting skills obviously failed. Actually, I take that statement back; it's pretty much all bare again, as the chickens demolished that patch of mustard--they loved it!
I planned to let them on it for a week, but took them off after five days as they discovered a weak spot in the fence and escaped multiple times. The mustard is nothing but a few short stems now; I don't know if they will regrow, but I'll get out there and sow some more seeds (mustard or something else, not sure) and try to get the whole yard this time.
