Around Imbolc, the day the juices start to flow under the ground, the seeds appear at Lowe’s and other places. Not wanting to make a spectacle of myself, I try to avoid clapping and cheering when I see them. 🙂 I haven’t seen them yet, but soon.
I have most of what I need cos I’m a seed saver and heirloom gardener. But I’ll have to get some seeds for mustard greens, cos Eliza and Dylan feed that to their dragons. Growing dragon food, that’s a first for me. Yea, there be dragons, specifically bearded dragons. This is Malcom.
They eat crickets and other bugs, some leafy greens, fruit and also the summer squash that I grow.
Yep, gardening is good for the soul, good for the earth, and good for growing lots of good food, for me and family, and now……dragons.
Well, looks like the dragon is very hungry… 😉
They’re pretty much always hungry. They can grow to 2’ long. Interesting and friendly little creatures.
Oh no, no, no, a DRAGON?! Don’t those things breath fire?
No, not this kind of dragon. They don’t even bite. They just keep sticking their tongue out on things to taste them. They are interesting little creatures. I’ll grow them some mustard greens in the herb bed. I find them not edible, but I don’t eat crickets either.
It is still scary! I do not think I would want to get tasted either. What if he likes what he tastes?
He just tastes to recognize that he understands what is around him, Really. The kids have studied up on all this. He tastes my hand and my shirts, and it’s all ok. You should get one.
Oh goodness no!
The thought that your garden has a “dragon food” section is adorable!
I already grow several herbs they will like, and mustard greens will be a new addition. They just got their dragons, so this is a first this spring, a dragon garden. Thanks for visiting my blog!
