Hi people, long time no see! My garden has become a jungle this year (again). Mostly spearmint, but I do have some eggplants, cucumbers, sage, rosemary, green onions, swiss chard, and some other things growing. I've been busy building my business and supporting the Occupy OC group. Only having time to cut back the atrocious morning glories that keep taking over! How about you all?

I wanted to go to that :( but can't. If I could keep chickens in Irvine, I would be one happy camper.

Just sharing information...
OC Slow Food General Membership Meeting and
Potluck:
Caring for City Chickens
When: Saturday, September 12th at 4 p.m.
Where: City of Orange
Join Slow Food Orange County Chair Heather (Stoltzfus) Westenhofer at her home
in Orange to learn the ins and outs of urban chicken keeping. If you've been
thinking about keeping chickens in the city, come meet Chickadee, Kerfufle, and
Drumstick and have your questions answered. This potluck will also kick off the
2010-2011 calendar year and you will not want to miss this opportunity to hear
what's in store for the coming months and give your input to help shape the
future of Slow Food Orange County. Please bring a dish to share (labels on all dishes
are great,
too) and don't forget to bring a copy of the recipe for the forthcoming Slow
Food Orange County Cookbook.
Please RSVP to Ms. Wayan Kaufman [mailto:events@slowfoodoc.org]. The address of
the potluck will be
emailed to you when you RSVP. This event will be limited to 50 people.

Ryan,
I thought the rain-gutter design would be more practical in a cooler climate or in our winter (SoCal). I grew strawberries one year raised in a shallow bed and they dried out way too fast!
How are the chickens, what kind do you have?

Amber,
That is a great design. This is the one that I use.

Ryan,
I guess we all spend more time in the garden than on the computer!
This reply is to your interest in chickens and gardening. Take a look at this chicken coop design!

Is anyone still here?
Comment by Ryan Fisher on July 15, 2009 at 9:22am
The chickens are nice, very social. But my yard is small enough that the coop takes up all the space we had available. One thing I'm thinking about is a vertical garden made out of rain gutter. http://lifehacker.com/5229896/gutter-gardens-grow-produce-without-taking-up-space. But I'm not sure how this will work, or where my wife will allow this to be placed. Has anyone here tried this or something similar?

The Sunday newspaper had an article about the popularity of chickens. I live in the part of Irvine that has no HOA! I would hate to have chickens that aren't allowed to run around though. They certainly wouldn't be cage-free or pastured - I have plenty of bugs they can eat. My friend in YL has chickens that are left out to wander for part of the day, but they do tend to escape the yard from time to time.

I live in Rancho Santa Margarita. However, the research I did for the local areas did showed that almost all of OC (at the city level), including Irvine, allows chickens. Usually it is up to 4 chickens contained in a coop at all times. So no chickens running around the yard. Also no roosters allowed. My HOA is pretty easy going about it, as long as they can't been seen from the street.
