Of course no two bags of Peppers were the same and I remember Col laughing as
he told me how much he'd spent trying to remove the weeds that he was now
bagging for Greens n' Grains!!
So in order to produce a reproducible product Elenbee have dispensed with some seeds and added other which all in all makes for a great product. The actual contents are a closely guarded "Elenbee Secret" and as I'm not a seed counter at the best of time I thought I'd let my finches be the best judge.
The Result? Well, I'd let you know what they left behind, well that is if they actually left anything behind that is!! If the proof is in the pudding my finches reckon it's pretty damn good and I'll be placing an order for a few (well, quite a few actually!!!) bags to make the journey south!
Now if I can only talk them in to making my African Waxbill Mix!!!!
Just a note that after discussion Elenbee decided to omit the Linseed from the final batch making it possible to add this to your mix soaked/sprouted seed. if you require Linseed in your mix simply ask Barry & Terese and they'll sort it for you - too easy!!!

Oh, and for the record I'm not associated in any way with Elenbee and this
isn't a paid advertisement I'm just a happy customer who appreciates the time
and money that Elenbee has outlaid to ensure finch breeders in my home state
have access to the best seeds available for their charges.
So you will keep those bags of Greens n' Grains for me won't you guys.......................I'm sure you want to.....guys???
Just in case you wish to grab a bag or four I have taken the liberty of including Elenbee's contact details - happy hunting folks!!!
