Garden Pictures

These are just a few pics of my garden earlier this month.  Lucy and Ethel are a pair of Araucana chickens.  They are wonderful at pest control, and they do not like anything coming into their yard.  They have chased groundhogs, ground squirrels, crows, chipmunks, and cats out of the garden area.  Love my chickens and their pretty blue eggs!
The trellis is covered in Kentucky Wonder pole beans.  I save seeds every year, and every year they produce more beans than I can can, freeze, and sent to all my friends!  Last year I had over 30 pint jars, 15 freezer packs, and the kids were begging for a break from beans.  This year I cut back on the plants by half.
