Hey

I'm trying to make my reptiles feeding a little easier just now as I have my exams coming up!

So what packs of salad or veg do you use?


It's for a bearded dragon!

Thanx

I use one of the mixes, unsure which.
has alot of escarole(sp?) and some other recommended veg for beardies in them just more simple most of the time :Na_Na_Na_Na:

you can read the back and it normally gives you the contents :)

regards

Yeah Im not liking the way all the small bussinesses are going bust!

My mate owns a pet shop and people will come in and complain that the rabbit food (good brand - out my mates shop) is 20p dearer than down the road at safe way...

Some people don't think!

I feel you can go to a supermarket...it's easy to get different types if stuff but they only know just below the basics of most of there items where as you can go to a small store that sells that item and others the same and you can ask questions and you will get a very acurate answer!

The herb salad mix is decent enough, as is the mixed rocket.
Also worthwhile is the butternut squash/sweet potato mix - boil the lot, mash it up, let it cool, bag it, freeze it in portions. Usually around £2 a bag, but often find it reduced to clear in my local asda, and as I'm cooking & freezing it same day, then its all good. :2thumb:

I was thinking the other day "how the hell do normal people cope when it comes to fruit and veg!?". Cos if I need something I just pop downstairs and get it so I can imagine having to plan ahead can be difficult. Sometimes I get lazy though...my locusts get a whole cabbage lol.

All the best and remember to shop local!

Florette crispy salad is what we use, mixed with bits and pieces like spring greens, rocket and squash.

As for the green grocer, I would LOVE to get all my food from the specialists. The quality is usually much better and the produce is often local. A lot of the stuff is still imported too though which is depressing, I suppose oranges in November have to be.
Another issue is getting to the shop. Supermarkets are open here 8-10 so it us possible to shop after work whilst all the specialists are 9-5. Who has time to shop during that time?!

I hate tescos. I've made it clear a few times before. I'm a plumber and spent a long time on one job we were there for months. There was this little shop ran by the same bloke for years he was brilliant then tescos brought the shop next door and killed his buisness. I also remember when the monopoly commision has refused to grant a supermarket to buy a chain as it'd take to much of the market then tescos brought them. They are by far the biggest suermarket so gow did thay work? This country is so corrupt its preventing the little man making it. Give it ten years and we will all work for one or two companies. Communis in back suites.

I always use small stores and my local rep shops this is why

i though all the bagged salads like florette were coated in chlorine to preserve them?
whats the reccomended daily allowance of chlorine for a beardie, lol.
I don't know if they are but you should be washing everything anyway so it shouldn't matter

Think 'coated' might be the wrong word, haha =P. There's probably a similar amount of chlorine in normal tap water anyway if you were to wash all the bugs of your homegrown veggies.
