Dear Family & Friends
Having a tortoise living freely in our garden makes our gardening world more interesting. He is a pet but he just takes care of himself. He finds and builds his own home, and he shop and feeds himself too. He likes the chicken and human company from time to time. When I'm gardening, he see to it that he stays close to where I'm working.
|Hind legs out stretched - tortoise on his relaxing mood - sunbathing
|Favourite food - only very red strawberry will do
He loves warm weather...and he has his daily routine of sprawling out his hind legs for a morning sunbathing session. During the cold season, we don't see him...he goes to sleep..but when it's warm...he does non-stop roaming the entire garden, and foraging food all day long. He only likes to eat what he likes to eat...mostly, it's also what we human likes to eat. His favourite green is Pak Choi and very red juicy strawberries for dessert.
|This one very precious red strawberry managed to land on a plate
We hardly get pak choi harvest because he gets them while it's still very young...so I carry on sowing! As for the strawberries, we enclosed a patch where he couldn't get over...but other strawberry beds are left in the open and that's where the competition between humans and the tortoise over the sweetest fruit takes place.
We all have to work in life for our food..but it's also good to be able to share with each other too:) Hope you have a good fun day too!
