- infecting brains with permaculture
- convincing folks that you are not crazy
- gift giving obligations
- stocking stuffer
- gambling distraction
- an hour or two of reading

Hi,

I'm in the process of making my market garden no dig. I'm setting it out mostly in 4' beds, some 3' 6''.

One issue that I anticipate coming up against is an increase in leather jackets - the larvae of crane fly Tipula oleracea

I wondered if a moveable chicken tractor that could be rotated around the beds in the quieter months might reduce their numbers, or do the larvae burrow deeper that would be accessible for a chicken?

If anyone has any experience in this I'd love to hear about it.

thanks

Mike
