Rabbits and Compost

After having to purchase compost to build my square foot garden, I told myself no more, from now on I will make my own.  I have to say that my previous attempts at composting have been less than successful.  This time it will be different, I will succeed.   To start, I bought “Composting for Dummies” and have enlisted my friend’s mom, Collete, for help.  Colette takes in hurt, abused, and homeless rabbits.  So what better place to go for a little rabbit poop for the compost pile.

12 of the 26 rabbits

I thought you might enjoy seeing her prize rabbit, the only one which was not a rescue.

Lion Head Rabbit

Here is Colette with one of the rabbits.

  2. Oh my, that Lion Head rabbit is just adorable…love the hairdo!

    You will succeed at compost. Truth is, compost happens, whether you want it to or not. If you’re shy on material, and have any stables near you, you might check with them too. Most stables are all too happy to unload compostable materials. Freecycle.org may have some listings to help you locate compost material near you.

    Adorable rabbits – and Collette must have a heart of gold too!

    Her prized pet is a gorgeous creature – looks like one of my daughter’s stuffed animals!

    I never saw a rabbit like the lion one. I can see why he is her prize rabbit, so cute. Rabbit pellets would make great compost, and I don’t mean the ones they eat. LOL

    Hi Charlotte, this is my first visit to your blog. Glad to find another blogging gardening enthusiast.

    I love the adorable Lion Head Rabbit. Its long eyebrows remind me of wise old sage in Chinese martial art movies. Or the Master in Kungfu Panda. Wise Old Rabbit!
