Babymother is visiting, complete with rather grown up babies. In desperation at the weeding backlog, I tried to harness the source of perpetual energy that is the small child to productive ends
Unfortunately, it turns out the hens are fussy eaters and prefer lettuce so we took them* cycling instead. It doesn’t do much for the weeds but they seem to have fallen asleep rather quickly. Fresh air and exercise, works every time.
*the children, not the hens.
