This interesting chicken coop is in a neighbor's front yard, which I see these days when I walk to the bus on my way to the coffee shop in the mornings. You can see that the owner has recently moved the contraption forward by a few feet, after letting the chickens fertilize the yard, as well as eat all the vegetation, even as dry as the lawn is right now. I wonder if there's some beds in their coop that allow the chickens to lay eggs.
In any event, it's a clever idea that I've seen in some articles about how to get more "green" while raising poultry. I wonder if these chickens would qualify as "free range," since that would definitely be stretching the truth, in my opinion.
|This morning's roses|
I stopped by the Cornwall Rose Garden this morning, feeling the sun gradually change from delightful to, well, on the hot side. We have a couple of days of moderate temperatures before we move into another warm spell, with it getting really hot just about the day we have our weekly hike on Thursday. Sigh. All I can think of is that we only have a few weeks left of traditional summer, and Labor Day is right around the corner!
I have an appointment with my acupuncturist in less than an hour, so I'd better wrap this up before I head out the door and make my way to the Needle Man. I never thought I'd ever say this, but I actually look forward to it.
