Living Vegetable Trash Cans
Don't ya hate throwing out good, organic veggie scraps?
Wouldn't it be nice if you could put all your leftover vegetables to good use?
Well, you can. The solution is called "Own a Couple of Rabbits".
Here, Alora is enjoying some bell pepper trimmings.
The bunnies get all the leftover vegetables, and in return they give us lots of compost. And I do mean lots.
Come spring, all the lovely compost that has built up over the winter, can be tilled into the soil in the garden to help the new sproutlings thrive and grow.
On another note, I think Chip might be expecting a litter anytime now. Did I tell you I think Alan, Alora, and Dutchess are all boys? Yep. I think there is a pretty good chance she is pregnant. I check her cage every morning, expecting to find a fur nest full of tiny, pink, naked, kits.
Alora is an attention freak..in case you haven't noticed by all the pictures of "her" sticking "her" nose in the camera.
Lately, when I tote all the bunnies outside for the day, Alan has started a bad habit of nipping (biting) me. Solution = carrots. Now, every time I carry them to their hutch, I let them nibble on a carrot, instead of my fingers. This makes the trip more enjoyable for everyone.
Do you have any living vegetable trash cans?
