Chickens go for the good stuff

This gorgeous lettuce was grown biodynamically, a method even better than organic, which produces vibrant vegetables. You can feel the life energy of them nourishing your own life. The moment I put it on the ground to photograph it, the chickens came racing over and gave no quarter. They recognized something good. It was impossible to take a good photograph and fend them off at the same time. They managed to steal some leaves despite my best efforts. At least it will be in my egg in the morning.
