Child Labour = Easy Allotmenting

We had some little visitors today.

My favourite niece and nephews came to see the chickies and give me a hand sowing some sunflowers for the summer.

Child labour

The good thing is, when you tell a kid that chickens will love them more if they let them eat weeds, they suddenly like to help do the chores! I think got through about 3 barrows. Very proud of these little ones.

Also mighty pleased with the new list of potential chicken names thought up by the niece when she was trying to skive off weeding duties.

Another nice little treat came in the form of MrT having an early finish. He moved my lawn, did some more sawing for the potting shed and even managed to say hello to his long-suffering family! I’m sure they only get to see him at Christmas!

Off to mow…

I did treat him to a nice beer and a bonfire for all of his troubles, so he cheered up a little by the end of the night.
