Why do they hate us?

They don’t, of course. Like everything else on the planet, they’re just trying to survive. Still and all, when they show up in hordes and decimate an entire summer’s worth of work seemingly overnight, it’s hard to be magnanimous.

My solution: chickens. Since I started letting them into the vegetable garden, I haven’t seen a hornworm, aphid, or stinkbug anywhere.

My new problem: chickens like tender greens almost as much as they like bugs. Hmm.
