Clever girl! Imagine the danger if you packaged it in a Coco-Puffs cereal box! :lol:

Nice work on the label! :)

Certainly, feel free! We rabbitosis sufferers have to band together and share profit making ideas so we can all afford MORE BUNNEHS!!!

I delivered a full size pick-up load for $75. Last year I did for $60, and then ended up taking it an hour away. So this year I put it up and still ended up taking it an hour. I like the big one and done instead of a bag here and there.

I just got two more people asking for 6-7 bags.

Now I think I might be out, that would be everything from October to now. Boy that was quick.

I'd ask for $150 at least. Plus delivery.

Congrats, Sky! I think the key is timing it right- gardens are just now going in or are far enough along now that people need additional fertilizer.

I'm glad you tried advertising it again! Hopefully they will be repeat customers next year, or even this fall. :)

I had a guy come by this morning. Took a bunch of rabbit waste (hay/poop/etc). I find I have to give it away, so figured it would be the same. He turned and gave me $20. I was shocked (happy, but shocked). Normally people only want to buy my bagged rabbit poop. but the compost quality stuff... selling it! woot woot! :)

My bunny berries are far to precious at this point in time for me to consider selling any. I am planning on building 3-4 raised beds like these (pictured below) that will be filled with bunny berry compost when completed. Raised this high I should be able to keep my pesky pup from digging them all up. 5'X7'X34"

How many rabbits do you have MSD?

I only have 3 at this time and every bit goes into our overly large garden. :oops: We had a friend of the family till the garden and he made it 15'Wx30'L. :lol: :lol:

:? That reminds me I need to place some around my fruit trees too.

I think I need more rabbits. :twisted: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yikes! Those will take tons of compost and bunny berries to fill! Most vegis don't have that deep of a root system- seems like a lot of extra soil. I am too busy to find it right now, but I have a chart that shows the root depth of various plants- I'll post it for you at some point so you can get the most use out of your beds.

wamplercathy wrote:How many rabbits do you have MSD?


70 adults/older juniors, 32 weaned juniors, and 3 kits in the nest. I'm actually kind of low right now... I hate to admit it, but I actually have some empty cages. :oops:

I could actually use some of my current supply in my raised beds- but right now selling it for a bit of ready cash trumps using it myself. :(

Well, yeah. That goes without saying. ;)

Not all of those beds is going to be the compost. My brother is going to be digging out a basement and I will have quite a bit of dirt to use under the compost. The reason for those to be so high is that my brother and his mother in law Olivia love to garden but they cannot get down on the ground to pull weeds and such. So I figured I will bring the soil up to them. :D

Wow! That is a lot of rabbits Mamasheepdog!! I can't imagine taking care of that many. That surely seems like it must be a full time job.
Makes me curious of all the folks on rabbit talk how many people have on average, who has the most etc. Has their ever been a poll on that or anything.

I forget who it was... Grumpy? Or maybe Dood? One of the guys said he has way more than that. I can't even imagine.

I am pretty sure it was Grumpy, though he had a drop in number a while back. I am unsure as to how many he has now though.

Nah, not really. You just have to have a time saving system in place.

Looks like we need to revive it. :mrgreen:
