Fruit cage

The next big project is to construct a fruit cage next to the chook run. It will be planted with raspberries, black and red currants. The chickens will be encouraged to forage in here each winter to eat up any pests hibernating in the soil. The cage is necessary to stop the birds from taking all the fruit.
