|The wooden structure is about 1/2 done. It will be 5ft x 30ft.|
You may notice that I have irises growing in the area where the tortoises will be. Those will all be dug up before any tortoises are allowed in there... I'm just waiting for them to finish blooming. I want to transplant the 'fancy' irises, and will give away the 'normal' ones.
I have already planted or transplanted many tortoise safe plants into this area, and I also seeded it with the Tortoise Lady's seed mix (thank you, Lynne!). I'll still have to supplement with tortoise food I collect, but I am sure the tortoises will have fun chomping down on the good edible greens!
|I dug a 'no-escape' trench, and filled it with river rock.|
|The Russian tortoises got to play inside the makeshift pens while I worked|
