Hey folks, as we all know winter is coming, more so here than elsewhere in the US I suppose but our fall colors are about 50-75% now which means the food source for a number of my critters is disappearing (hardwood leaves) and my Bramble bushes didn't do hardly anything despite growing all season.
So I went out today and in a ravine I found some still green oaks and I collected about 2 dozen oak twigs filled with still green leaves for my critters to eat over winter (each twig takes them apx. 2 weeks). I did not allow the twigs to soak up any excess water I simply laid them all flat hydrated as they were when clipped and bundled them in a giant size ziplock and popped it in the freezer. This is the first time I've ever frozen the twigs what are they like upon defrosting after a couple months are they wilted or will they perk up when warmed and rehydrated?
I know there are folks here with the same sort of insects, we don't need to discuss any specifics, I'm just curious about the food plant storage when your food plant cultures crash.
Thanks for any input!
