Summer!

Can’t believe its been nearly a year since I last posted.

To cut a long story shorts, Ive been running my own craft business, working full time, helping my husband set up his business, visiting sick relatives, and of course looking after my precious lizards – to time has flown pretty quickly, especially since I broke my arm in January.

Anyway back in business now and have planted up some lovely treats for the lizards including the staple nasturtiums, collards, turnips, carrots and leeks, some chives and spring onions (for Pooky, they are his favourite if you don’t have any dandelions)

Catching up in the garden

It’s been over a month since I last had time to blog, the nasturtiums I pictured a while ago have grown a lot as you can see. I have tried a new variety this year called nasturtium peregrinum which originates from Peru, the seedlings were only small in April but look at them now.  These will creep and become a mass of green leaves and small yellow flower the iguana and uromastyx can eat.

I also planted tall and empress varieties of  nasturtiums.

Spring has sprung in the garden and the vivariums!

Been too busy in the garden to blog recently, but have been planting many seeds and taking lots of pics so I can do a full update at the weekend.

Planted lots of endive and raddichio seeds, planted out the various nasturtium seedlings and been doing plenty  of watering, as the weather has been quite dry.

Also having to keep the uromastyx  from fighting too much, its their way of a mating ritual but it distresses me more than them I think, as they do bite each other quite a bit.

Nasturtiums and Landcress

It’s been a while since my last update, we have had some good weather of over the last few weeks and the seedlings have been doing well.

The nasturtiums have shot up and the landcress too.

It’s now time to pick the mustards I grew over the winter as they have reached their maximum size and the warm weather has meant they have started to flower and go to seed, better pick them and now and use them before they are useless.

Here are some pics:

Whats growing this week?

Well the dandelion and landcress seeds are staring to peep through, I should have marked these as I can’t remember which tray contains which seeds, until they grow a bit bigger.
