A while back I mentioned in passing to The Farmer that I’d like to plant a few tomatoes and peppers this year. Notice I said a FEW.
Well, he finally got his now repaired tiller back, and a pretty spring day, so Saturday he was out tilling up a new garden bed. Yeah, there had been a garden there in times past, but it was so overgrown with grass it might as well have been the first time to till it.
You can see what I mean in this picture when you look at the parts that are NOT tilled!
Almost as soon as he quit tilling, the guinea fowl and chickens moved in to scratch around in the fresh dirt and look for bugs and worms.
It was a windy day, so there’s a lot of noise on the video. . .
The guineas thought it was neat to lay around and take dust baths while pecking in the dirt for bugs.
The hens and roosters enjoyed scratching around in the dirt seeing what tasty morsels they could find.
The Farmer took a rest from his labors, and of course Toby the Farm Collie took advantage of that to see if he could get some extra pets.
I’m thinking he needs to rest after tilling up such a huge space for a FEW tomato and pepper plants!
