For The Neglected!

Some days it is easier for me to send photos to Facebook than to make a blog post, I am sorry to those who follow me on here but not FB!

The rains have slowed down but we have had good crops on our property. We planted sunflowers, hay, dandelions, two other kinds of grasses that are good for rabbits. A plant called dodo that people eat like collard greens. We first did test plots – A. Dodo with no fertilizer B. Dodo with rabbit fertilizer and C. Fertilizer all the farmers here use. The dodo that was planted and fertilized with rabbit fertilizer grew, was harvested, planted again before any of the other two plots had gotten six inches tall! We have about an acre planted with various plants that will be fed fresh or dried for pellet food for bulls, goats and rabbits. We should have planted more sunflowers! All parts of the plant is good for the rabbits and seeds will be ground up and put in the pellets.

A solar pump is in the works for the well in back of the property. It will fill tanks for the rabbit house, for the bulls and be used for drip irrigation so that we can grow even through the dry season. It’s been busy around here!
