Growing local

Loving these fast growing greens. Taste like a cross between lettuce and brassica leaf. This time of year its so easy to be self sufficient.

Not rude at all Andrew. Sunshine is everything. Most of this grows on my drive in full sun all year.  Just put 60 quail out into the grow out tractor and have 150 or so eggs in the incubator. Going to split eggs into two incubators at lockdown. Am going to keep churning through the process till I have 300ish in the freezer for the next 10 months when I will replace my stock. The last lot I butchered were  160-180g when dressed. So many eggs to get through, getting 125-135 per week, have to start selling some.Think there is 180 in the fridge at the moment.

Would you consider it rude if I was to punch you in the belly? LOL. Half my yard is in darkness here. Admittedly the other half is going great.
