The Birds Enjoying a Good Dust Bath and a Snack!

The chickens are always the first step on the road to composting.  They love greens!  In the past couple of weeks they have been feasting on carrot tops, beet greens, and tomato pulp left over from making sauce.  From there the litter goes out onto the compost heap and then finds its way back to the garden.  A closed nutrient loop!
