Spring Garden Acre is a blog about our family's gardening adventures. We call our place Spring Garden Acre, because we live on Spring Road with about an acre. We're located in zone 6b of south central PA. We grow peaches, berries, vegetables and keep a few chickens for eggs and meat.

Composting for Spring
We're piling up the composted manure this week. It's full of worms. Cracker, Cruncher and Muncher are 3 very happy hens! I have to admit, I have a hard time sharing garden worms with them, but there is plenty to go around. I shouldn't be stingy. Anyway, the chickens do their part by spreading the compost around the garden. Last fall they scratched through and spread out half of a small truck load. We didn't have to touch it with a shovel.
