I know, I know.

A recent conversation at my house:

Guest: Wow those are some nice garden beds!

Me: Thanks! I like them. They are made from recycled milk jugs!

Guest: Cool! Are you going to plant anything in them?

Me: ((stomps back into house)).

You see, I've BEEN planting stuff. I've planted cilantro (twice), red lettuce, arugula, onions, broccoli, and carrots. Anything that actually sprouted and grew was just devastated by marauding chickens. They are truly the Godzillas of vegetable gardens. I would put up barrier fences, only to have them hop right over them and go nuts, scratching, digging and eating. Nothing like looking out the kitchen window in the morning, seeing a fuzzy chicken butt in my planters and having to run out in the rain in my work suit going "CHICCCCCCCCCKENNNS! NO!!!"

So until I get a better fence built, NO I will not be planting anything.
