Our Second Time Eating Today

I planted a hosta, cilantro and parsley

Ginger loves mango, look how she holds it with her feet:)

Rosie is deciding if she wants more

MMM....I love tomatoes!

It will fit in my mouth.......

Rosie, Ginger and Cecil are doing very well today. I was a bit concerned this morning because none of them ate very well. However this afternoon I gave them another bath and fed them the rest of their breakfast and they ate very well. I reconfigured their habitat and planted a hosta and some more cilantro and parsley. I put the plants on one side and I took everything else out, as it was not surviving well, and put a thicker layer of moss on the other side. I must admit that I did not "plant" the greens in the first habitat, I picked them off the host bush and placed them in there. I quickly realized that this didn't work and put extra coir in the bottom of the habitat and actually planted the hosta and herbs in the dirt.....o.k. I was honest about this so don't laugh!!!

This is a learning experience for all four of us (Rosie, Ginger, Cecil and myself), lol! I was so excited today when I started talking Rosie came out of the moss and looked at me so I picked her up and she let me rub her head and neck without being afraid and putting her head back in her shell. I think they are getting used to their new home and we are enjoying the process and loving them being here.

  1. Lol, sorry, but this was funny.
    If you plant in coir, it will grow super well, actually Coir is the best growing medium for plants, because it holds moisture so well. I use it for most of my seedlings.
    The babies look so happy, which makes me of course happy too.

  2. I know, it was hilarious and most of my family got a kick out of it too!
