I am gradually harvesting the leaves from the veg plot for the girls. I thought I would give them a mix of green and purple leaves and see if they had any preference.
What amused me is that the girls, in turn, seem to need to get a bit higher up before they descended on the leaves.
When I returned a little later all the purple leaves were gone. I think they are softer so disappeared quicker. I gave the girls the last purple leaves from the veg plot.
Apricot was having a, dumb chicken, moment and could’t seem to work out why she couldn’t get to the purple leaves.
She decided she, once more, had to go a bit higher to get the right amount of inspiration.
It wasn’t long before all the leaves disappeared. There are two more green lettuce in the veg plot for the girls and then we are all out of home grown leaves.
I am ripening the last of the tomatoes indoors and then all that is left on the veg plot is the courgettes. They have slowed right down but so far are still going and we still one had roasted with Sunday lunch.
