    Hello all,

    I recently moved from Southern California to Naperville, Illinois so that's a drastic agricultural zone difference for me. My wife and I purchased seeds to grow carrots, broccoli, onions, and greens. This is both of our first times growing food for ourselves, we also plan to feed some to our bearded dragon :)

    I'll be posting updates here, as well as videos to my Youtube channel. I follow Mark who has been an inspiration for me.

    I'm on the look out for different means of pest control for our new veggies which we will be growing in pots. I'm wanting to lean towards organic so hopefully I'll find some good threads here.

    Thank you all!

    -Andrew

    Hi there Andrew, bearded dragons come from my neck of the woods!
    I knew they ate a bit of fruit and veg but shouldn't you be breeding meal worms, beetles or wood cochroaches and small grasshoppers for yours?

    Hi ClissAT young beardies need about 80% protein/insect and 20% veggies but when they're adults they transition to about 80% veggies and 20% insects. We're Ember live mealworm, and freeze-dried mealworms and crickets for now, we'll transition to superworm when he gets bigger.

    Here's a video of our garden winter review :)
