Lizard Treat

Postby ShyVulpine » Sat Mar 22, 2008 9:34 pm

Well, it's that time of year when my green thumb goes to work ----- and gets blisters. Owie!! It took a ton of digging.

I started a new garden last Sunday (the 15th) and it's much bigger than I expected it would be. I ran out of room for our six-pack of lettuce and my mom still wants to get eggplant and I'd like to get some melon plants! :lol:

I planted all the baby plants in dirt hills to keep the roots from getting all soggy but the digging and hunting for pesky snails was the most work. The beer traps worked some (put little containers of beer around the plants) but sometimes just finding the snails asleep, squashing or feeding them to the water dragon were a lot more effective.

I found a weird bug I think is a white grub of a chafer beetle while digging. When I put it into Godzilla's (water dragon) cage, you'd swear he couldn't get to it fast enough! Loves the grubs---- and disgusts my mom. Hehe! My guy likes all his food fat and squirmy!

Hi,
Here in Australia there is a similar white grub, just bigger, called Witchetty grub and it's classed as bush tucker (aboriginal food)
I haven't tried it yet and when I find one I bury it again. :mrgreen:
We have a frilled neck lizard running around in the garden he'd love it.
you should have posted a photo of your garden, I love gardening too!
In the next month I start planting my tomatoes, I plant them in conjunction with marigolds which supposed to keep bugs and pests away.
Good luck with yours!

Wow. What a gorgeous fellow. I have pictures of the garden plants in the Pictures discussions board under Misc. Didn't know where to post about plants... :?

You should see the Columbine flower.
