We recently cut back lots of biomass, now the chickens get to do pest control and leave fertilizer.
Sometimes I look at what resembles an overgrown jungle and get discouraged about how much work needs to be done.
Then when I see it scythed down into composting ground cover, I’m reminded of how simple and abundant this system actually is.
With patience and a slight shift in perspective, the nuisance becomes nutrients for a future harvest.
This is the way.
