This is what's left of my wormwood
Can you see it? It's those couple of sticks in amongst the mulch.
I planted the wormwood in the chookyard with a fence around it in the hope that it would grow big and strong and the chooks could peck at the leaves through the wire as it's supposed to stop mites and worms. Well, they shouldn't have any now, as they somehow got under the fence and totally striped it.
It took me ages to find a wormwood down here and I really thought I wouldn't be able to find another, but guess what I turned up today? Ta Da...
A better fence will be put around this one.
In other chooky news, I also had to put up this fence yesterday.
My poor asparagus, pumpkins and zucchini were getting trashed every time I let the chooks out to roam the garden.
But wait... There's more.
This is the third thyme I have bought in the last few weeks once again thanks to my darling chooky chooks. I'm hoping they can't get to this one.
So as you can see, it's been an interesting week with the little darlings, but they are laying lots of eggs for us, so they get to stay.
In other news, I bought a new bay tree (I managed to kill the last one) a sage for my herb garden and some comfrey plants to border my vege patch to hopefully keep out some of the couch grass.
and... my beetroot and spinach seeds are starting to shoot.
I think that's it, hopefully there will be no more demolishing of the garden this coming week.
edited 1/2 hour later...... Sophie's fairy garden is now minus all the flowers, hmmmm. The chooks have previously ignored the fairy garden, apparently it was just to tempting today.
