Fresh harvest for a salad to pass at brunch with friends today. Even the ginger-carrot dressing was from my garden. Cucumbers, purple cosmic carrots, various types of lettuce, nasturtiums, parsley, borage flowers, and free tomatoes from the chickens. #purplecosmiccarrots #romainelettuce #redleaflettuce #parsley #escarole #nasturtiums #cucumbers #tomatoes #freshisbest #borage #gyo #eatwhatyougrow #organic #springsalad
@KariSamuel Um, yes they do, kinda. Every single tomato I have this year is a volunteer that has grown from the chickens bedding that's been composted. We get lots of scraps for the chickens from an organic restaurant. I compost the bedding but tomatoes grow from the compost. I've given away over 50 tomato plants & my "tomato forest" has many plants well over 8' tall. I've harvested over 90 pounds of free tomatoes this year and every single one was totally free. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
