Default All up

All my tortoises are up and eating well, one female already bashing another. So egg laying on the way when it gets warmer:0)

Mine are all up now and waiting for the weather to warm up just a little bit. Weeds seem to be coming up well which is a bonus.

Yes, I’ve noticed the weeds are springing up everywhere. Lovely fresh pickings each morning.

Mine have stopped digging in and now sleep in there nice new box I built them which is exactly the same as the old one but for some strange reason they didn't like it at first.
And I even picked 4 dandelion flowers on Tuesday and a few leaves but they are still a bit small so will leave them for a bit but the plantain i have growing in tubs in the greenhouse is doing very well.

I always find the sowthistle is the first to grow nice and big. Tons of bittercress in the garden down the side of the chicken coop too. Raining this morning so won’t be out in the garden for long today.

We've had a lot of rain and wind today but the sun has finally come out now which will warm them all up!

Well it looks like a better day there was a bit of a frost on the grass by the helipad at 5.30 and its now gone so warming up already.
I will need to speak with my assistant back home to keep an eye out on the Herman's so no eggs are missed as last week a few of them were acting very gravid already.
