  Artichokes and Greens
We have harvested our first mustard greens of the year. The greens are growing like crazy this year...we put in mustard greens, collards, and cabbage. I just read that if you plant basil next to cabbage it keeps the cabbage worms away. Anyone tried that?
Our first artichokes were good but we had to soak the earwigs out..am gonna try the rolled wet newspaper to see if that works...not a terriblly lot of meat to the artichokes but we have kind of ignored them until this year.

Come visit me, Little Suburban Farm.

Not sure about the hens...I am checking into it. Would love to have the fresh eggs! I know people down the street have hens and roasters..not sure if they have them legally or not.

It sounds like you're doing good! Are you allowed to have a few hens?
