Salad anyone!

Postby Samwithrow » Sun Aug 19, 2018 7:45 am

Have had Iggy for 5 months now, and he's growing like a weed. Iggy just down right refused to eat salad and I mean I tried everything. Different greens, sliced carrots, sliced apples, basil, green peppers and the list goes on. I tried in the morning, the afternoon, and the evening with no success. So I was letting Iggy pick out his silkworm, which by the way they only eat mulberry leaves and Iggy choose the leaf instead of the worm, go figure. So, the light went off and I escorted Iggy to the Mulberry tree where he proceeded to pig out on leaves. Wow, I thought to myself.

Now, Iggy gets Mulberry leaves with extra goodies tucked in, which I might add he loves. So, the moral of the story is, if your bearded refuses to eat salad, try starting with Mulberry Leaves! We live in Florida, so I planted two tress for a ready supply of salad fixings.

Where in the world do you get clover? I'm up for anything green he will eat!

It grows in many states naturally right in your yard if you don't spray weed killer. Parts of Florida may have it, other parts may not.
