I was clearing out one of the veggie beds and saw that the kale had been attacked by cabbage moth again. I pulled it out and went to feed it to the chooks. Normally I’d just throw it over the fence but I wanted to place it near the fruit trees so that they might get fertilised as the gerls eat.
As I was standing there watching them happily eat the kale, I noticed two small chat potatoes on the ground, where I normally throw the leftovers for them.
After a minute, I thought, “Hang on… I never throw spuds in here…”
No wonder I haven’t been getting many eggs lately! Lady Grey’s egg in the middle was the only one that was in its proper place in the nesting box. The other 11 were in a pile under a shrub in the corner. I’ve started putting shredded newspaper in there instead of rice hulls and I suppose some of them didn’t like it.
