Working with Permaculture principles to create an urban self reliant life in Essex
Friday, February 1, 2013
Had a stroke of luck this week. I decided to bring branches back from our wood to chip and refresh our chicken run (a laborious process!) Then I spotted a team of men working on the hedges at the house opposite. I had a word with them and - 'hey presto'! a large heap of chippings appeared.
Some are for the chicken run, some to put around the raspberries and some I will take to our wood to make the track less muddy (its nearly impassable at the moment.)
The chippings will stay in the chicken run for about a year to get nicely mixed with chicken droppings and then be used as mulch around our fruit trees and bushes.
