Chicken meets tomato

chicken meets tomato

I found this tomato being munched on by a few Japanese Beetles and thought to myself this is the day our youngest chicken gets to experience the tastiness of a tomato.

He seemed to be a bit perplexed and decided to go ask his mother what he should do.

My 12 week old chickens met their first tomatoes today too. After a few experimental pecks they were gulping down cherry toms whole! It's a good thing the tomato patch is far, far, away from their coop or they'd eat them all.

PS- My walking onions are starting to come up! Thanks for the great deal on them.

I'm so glad to hear that the onions are coming up! My older ones are finally putting up new green leaves too --- I'd missed them. :-)
