KEEPING chooks out of the blooming vegetable beds is a never-ending story.
In an attempt to keep the little vixens out of harms way while i continue digging out the triffid-like bamboo, I've wired off the yard into several sections to herd them about and preserve plants and my sanity.
However, when i do need some lawn ripped up and new beds established, they really hoe in and do a great job.
This method also allows me to dig and use a mattock without the risk of a dear little hen getting in the way with disastrous consequences.
Here's I've recycled old platic-covered fencing wire held in place by bambook poles gleaned from the first bamboo beheading in August. Now they have dried out they are proving useful for this and growing beans and peas.
