Wood chip and chickens
We have had a bit of wet weather recently and as a result, the mud has returned to the allotment. Parts of it would pass as part of the set for a reenactment of the Battle of the Somme. I have been sliding down embankments and wading through mud. To improve the paths temporarily (proper drainage will be dug soon) I dumped a large amount of wood chip on them made late last year from hedge trimmings. I also put some around the henhouses where the mud was especially bad. No need for me to spread it once I had tipped it out of the wheelbarrow. The hens did that for me.
