Week 6

The fungus toppled over again yesterday after becoming top heavy, hopefully now there will be a wider base to hold it up as it grows. This week the ants have been given a rest from having rose leaves and i have given them Privet, when i tried privet before the ants were only taking the new shoots but they are happy now with all the leaves.

Week 5

Everything is going really well, the garden continues to grow and they are using the waste area. They are still taking rose leaves over Vinca and i have tried Box and apple, apple has been accepted but not sure if they are just taking advantage of the juice or they are adding it to the garden. I have also installed an IP camera so i can watch them via the WWW. This took a few days to sort out but the camera is to close and am getting rubbish pics at the moment. When i get around to having a proper feeding area i will get the cam to focus better.
