This row of beds above has benefited from the helpful biddies in the chicken tractor which was carefully constructed by John to fit the beds. The girls eat the weeds and weed seeds and bugs and leave behind a bit of high powered fertilizer.
The swallowtail butterflies were knee-deep in the thrift. (Do butterflies have knees? Allegedly, bees do.)
Such beauties -- they seemed almost drunk on all that nectar!
You know I took more pictures...
