i went on holidays to a mates place and i tasted his tomato chutney and it was Delicious, he has given me some cherry tomatoes to get the seeds out to grow them, so i can make my own chutney.
i also grown some beans and cucumber and lettuce.
i got a pickle cucumber recipe off my mate also.
i am growing some lettuce for my girls, but i had a thought that i could grow other stuff for the girls.
So i am asking for some advice what is easy to grow for the girls.
i had another thought that i could make a compose bin and put food scraps that i dont give to the girls, i can put in that to break down.
so i am wondering if i use the soil in the chook run for my veggie garden, would that be ok, it is sandy soil but i have had the chook run for about 7 years.

Rainbow chard is a favourite for my chooks and it's easy to grow

Mine love it too - and it looks pretty and doesn't take up much space.
