Ann -- I just read the thread about the moat and sent the idea on to my husband. With all the wild critters we have around here, and the grasshoppers that visited us last summer, I'm thinking the moat idea might be great for us.
Here's the thread if anyone else is interested...
Wow, thanks for the pallet idea. We have a stack of them sitting in front of our new house that the stone company failed to come and pick up. They may just end up in our garden instead.
Great idea! :bee
You are all doing what I've been thinking about. Incorporating fruit trees, chickens and a lovely garden. I'll really look forward to seeing how things turn out for all of you. AND, starting the work on our place.
From the time I found this article on the internet, it's been my idea of the perfect garden/chicken coop setup!
Husband said it looked like a terrific idea! and that having chickens would be great. He's been working on another project but...
That is such an interesting idea. It reminded me of something a local nursery does here. They use rain gutters attached to the walls of their greenhouses. It looks extremely attractive and seems to work really well.
