Thanks for responding, guys. It's good to know many of you will also be giving carrot tops to your fids.
Ask the shopkeeper if he/she has the carrot tops nearby (probably bagged to dump). My local veggie shopkeeper cuts the tops off and bags them for the dump, so it's worth asking. Or as suggested, you could easily place a few carrot tops in a pot of earth and allow them to sprout.They look so happy with their carrot tops! I have been trying to find them in Madrid, but anywhere that you buy carrots, they already have their tops chopped!
Your flock looks great!
That's a cool idea, Rick. I already have radishes growing in one of my veg patches, but I'll pop that seed mix into a pot on Monday and see how they go. We had gorgeous strawberries from our garden today (with pancakes), and I had courgettes, peas, and lettuces later (fresh-picked spuds tomorrow). I love summer and the bounty we get from our garden. Small, but oh so satisfying.Carrots grow really easily in a large pot. So just get some seeds and you can grow your own. Sprinkle seeds on top of soil and keep moist till they sprout. They also benefit growing with radishes so put some radish seeds mixed in also.
