Bombyx rearing is now in full swing with some new & very rare varieties. I will put some pictures up when they mature.
The mulberry trees in the polytunnel are growing at a pace. With the cold nights fleece is being used just to keep the frost off them. The mulberries outside are just showing signs of waking up.
Eri have done very well through the winter, rearing has been cut down to a minimum at the moment while i wait for the lilac to grow & with this cold weather the caster seeds are still waiting to be planted.
No pernyi out yet but i am sure it will not be long, all pernyi are now sold out so i am sorry i will not be able to offer any more livestock this year.
