When we came to the conclusion that the best place for the chicken coop was on top of our lovely herb garden I was pretty devastated. I have always known people who garden in containers but I always thought the ground had to be better. I am happy to say I was mistaken! We moved all our herbs about two weeks ago and they are loving it! I also have the benefit of having them all around the house and on every stoop. Who needs flowers when you can walk out the door and smell rosemary? They are thriving in their new home and now I have a place for our chickens. Just another sacrifice for small space gardening!
