City-fied Self-Sufficiency

Welcome to 24 Carrot Rabbitry!

I am Miss M, an unapologetic Christian, wife of my beloved Shay, mother and homeschool teacher to my precious children ILoveBunnies and Bunny-Wan Kenobi. I am an amateur computer geek of nearly 30 years.

My husband, children, and I raise meat rabbits. In an uncertain world, looking to become even more uncertain, it’s a step in the direction of self-sufficiency. With less than an acre of land, there may be a lot we cannot do, but there is a surprising amount that we can do.

This blog is about our everyday advances in the direction of self-sufficiency, against the backdrop of living in a city.

Every family that is more self-sufficient than average is one less family that will need a lot of help in hard times. Then we can help others. :)

    I am so pleased to have found your website after you responded to my first post on Rabbit Talk. I am planning a 24 Carrot Rabbitry raised garden. Thank you, thank you for the detailed photo enhanced step by step instructions. Praying for you guys to have a smooth transition for your move. God Bless and Happy Easter! We’re seeing evidence of spring on our six acres here in Western New York.

      Thank you so much, HopesInnFarm! :)

      I’m glad you found my posts about the garden helpful. Definitely don’t do the extra work, though, to raise it that high, unless you absolutely need to. A normal Square Foot Garden needs to be only six inches deep with growing medium.

      I am hoping that with our upcoming move, we’ll be able to have gardens on ground that drains, so we don’t have to build deep beds like that. I plan to actually collect the growing medium from the big garden we have now, and reuse it — it’s expensive stuff, but it only needs a little compost added here and there to keep it going indefinitely!

      God bless you and yours, and Happy Easter!

    Miss M,
    I came across your blog through a recommendation and I am glad I did. I think you are doing great things for families trying to be self-sufficient. I read a few other blog posts – what I liked in particular was the one about ‘Thrifty Tips’. You have quite honestly and thoughtfully shared how you make your dollar last longer. I will be visiting again!

      Thank you, Nupur, I really appreciate the feedback!

      By the way, I visited your blog and read a good bit of it before approving your post. Many posts link directly to sales pages, and I rarely allow those. I have seen so many poorly-done sites on growing your business! Yours is different.

      Your blog has heart. It’s real. You sound passionate, and you sound like you care. Furthermore, your tips are sensible, and seem like they would actually work.

      I left your link intact, and it will appear any time you post in the future, if you include it.

      Thanks, Texascharm! :)

      I saw your comment, “OMG .. I saw this post and nearly hyperventilated. We did this 3-4 years ago … I’ll have to re-live through you!” (Comments closed shortly after that, and I’ve been having trouble logging into my blog.)

      That made me laugh! :D As long as I can get into my blog, I should be able to start posting again!
