Happy Spring! Give it a way

Good morning all. Spring break has begun here for the boys and I slept until 6am. Course that meant I had to do chores before I posted this morning.

And now I am in the mood to propagate my seeds through out the US. Now that didn't seem right.

I have prik-e-gnu's seeds to give away to 3 lucky people. But what is prick-e-gnu you ask. Good thing for you I have have an entire post about it here: Prik-E-Gnu

It is very compact and good to grow in a container. So my Urban Homesteaders should love it. It's pretty too.

Just leave me a comment for today until Tuesday evening and I will randomly draw 3 names to win a pod or two of seeds. Organically grown here on the Neophyte Homestead.

While you are waiting, here's some pictures from yesterday, enjoy.

I see you!


As you can see we did bunny maintenance yesterday.

Oh boy-o those bunnies and your sons are SO cute. I know that they are raised for food, but I would have to enjoy the cuteness for the time being. [The rabbits, not the boys. giggle]

And those turkeys are huge. Nice. Can I come to your house for Thanksgiving? I know, I know I keep threatening to show up, but YUM!

We are container gardening on our deck this season, for the first time, so yes - please enter me. I can't promise you if I win that I will get anything to grow, but we are going to try.

Oh, count me in! I'd love to grow some here in HOT springs. =)

Love the rabbits. I hope mine will arrive soon!

Here's an entry for the give a way but while I'm here, where do you get rabbits to start meat production? I imagine a pet shop might not be the best...

Phelan said...

Pet shops and human societies tend to frown on that. And they tend to only sell pet quality rabbits rather than meat. Our rabbits where wild domestics. They over populated in their pens, and instead of butchering, someone set them free. Several were caught, and brought to us. We got lucky that they were healthy and young.

Your best bet would be to look at small town papers, craig's list, and country road signs. Livestock auctions will also carry them. I have seen flyers at co-op and farm store bulletin boards.

Your kids are adorable and so are the bunnies!!! We are actually starting to plan our garden for the year...although I don't think it's ever going to stop snowing.

Oooh..I bet those would make brilliant hot pepper sauce! We've got a few varieties of hot peppers planted...nothing has come up yet, but we're hopeful...

Shade and Sweetwater,

I am with Red Beard, How do you go about getting rabbits for food purposes? I am also interested in trying these peppers. Sounds like a challenge for the "macho" men in my life to try. I love some heat too. Keep being an inspiration! :-)
