Backyard Chicken Update: My Backyard Brookside Homes Association Garden & Chicken Tour


Last weekend, I organized a garden tour for my neighborhood home association, Oak Meyer Gardens (we call it OMG, but realtors know us by Armour Hills Gardens). While OMG may not have the largest homes or the most amenities of any homes association, we do have a wonderful community of neighbors who are active, interested, and supportive of one another. This was our inaugural OMG Garden Tour so I was pleasantly surprised at the attendance, participation, and rave reviews. Next year, I plan to open it up to the public and I will be sure to post about it here.

At my home, the big draw was our chickens. Everyone wanted to learn the ins and outs of chicken keeping; Mr. Snodgrass and I had fun playing show and tell with our homemade chicken coop, vegetable garden, and four egg-laying hens.
