An Eggs-ellent Tour

Ever considered keeping your own chickens? When you raise your own eggs and meat, you know how the animal was treated and if its diet was jacked up on antibiotics. Get inspired at the fourth annual Chicken Coop Tour on June 11 and 12. Travel to a variety of experienced chicken keepers' backyards (some of which also have goats and ducks) and glean tips on rearing livestock. A few of the stops may even have homegrown fruits and vegetables for sale. A map and more details of the tour are posted on albuquerquecooptour.com.

Three Gardens in One

A springtime strategy for maximum yields

Searching for the best crops to plant with garlic, Ari LeVaux developed a technique called "tossing seeds randomly." He put all the seeds he didn't get around to planting last year into a jar, shook it up and threw them by handfuls. This experiment produced the "garlic patch friends" and a springtime strategy for maximum yields.
