a holiday for hens.....

This blog doesn't get many complaints, but I had one recently. Sue said 'Not enough pictures of hens'. That stung I can tell you!

So here they are, on holiday for the day on the allotment. The asparagus is at its fullest now and I wanted the hens to scratch about underneath to pick up grubs and eggs of asparagus beetle.
After the first frost, the asparagus tops will be taken away and burnt as a further attempt to stop asparagus beetle taking hold.

Well done girls!
