Good Morning Everyone. Nice to see all the pictures and videos of cuteness. Along with the beautiful scenery. Thank you for them.
Being back at work sucks. I wish I could do my own thing and not have to worry about a salary. Oh well such is life. We are busy having our house painted so of course the torts are back inside, which they are not too happy about. But at least the house will look nice once they are done. I will just have to make sure that all the paint etc is picked up before the torts go back out again. They have been permanently outside for four weeks now and are loving every minute of it. And I don't need to worry so much about their food as long as I make sure that they have plenty of good plants to graze from. Yayyyy me.
I bought a whole lot of seeds again and want to plant them and at some time in the future I want to make a DIY Hydroponics garden. As I think it will help with saving water as far as my plants are concerned. But that is a project for future.
In the meantime I am asking around by the tyre companies if any of them have any tyres which they are planning to scrap which I can maybe take off their hands and then I will use them to make myself some pot plants for three trees that I want to grow in my back garden to give it some colour and shade.

and a Moringa tree: The leaves from the Moringa tree will of course be very good food for the torts. So hopefully this time I will have much better luck with the seeds than I did before. And since it will be in a Tyre DIY Pot it cannot be destroyed by the lawn mowing company when they come to cut the grass in the garden.

Anyway that is me over and out until either tomorrow or Monday again. Chat to you all soon.
Hurry, get your torts back out in the garden! Interesting choice of seeds/trees. When we first moved into this house I had an Empress tree growing in a pot, but it didn't do well once transplanted. I probably shocked the fast growing roots. Paulownia tomentosa (common names princess tree, empress tree, or foxglove-tree, is a deciduous tree in the family Paulowniaceae, native to central and western China. It is an extremely fast-growing tree, and is a persistent exotic invasive in North America.
Have fun planting!
