Here are the bunnies we decided to keep:
This little doe is a tort. She has a lovely personality and loves to play on the bed!
I didn't have a regular tort (except for a vienna marked doe) so thought I should keep her
(I have a soft spot for torts).
Nice wooly coat too. No name yet.
I'm not sure why bunnies like jumping up on the window sill...probably just because they can.
This is the chocolate agouti buck. I think his name might be Bramble.
See his nice banded fiber? Characteristic of an agouti. I didn't have one of this color either.
He also has a nice personality!
This is Spinner's End Thistledown. Our first litter of REW's so we just had to keep one of those too!
Lila is quite attached to Ms.Thistle and is considering entering her into the 4H circuit.
Thistle is very tolerant of lap holding and ear stroking. Bronwyn visits regularly to give all of the animals their needed pats and to gather the collective rabbit wisdom into her soul.
We have been busy dealing with tomatoes! It seemed like a great idea to plant 60 of them at the time... I've made gallons of tomato puree, 1.5 gallons of dried tomatoes, 20 some odd pints of salsa, ketchup, and pizza sauce. The remaining Roma's and Amish Paste will go to tomato paste. Maybe another batch of ketchup; the first one was a bit too sweet for our taste
(Will says it tastes like New Zealand ketchup which he evidently didn't like).
Beets, eggplant and basil are still awaiting processing as well. Brussel sprouts, cabbage and cauliflower are safe for the time being and the onions are in and safely stored away. I think we'll have to pick the pumpkins and winter squash soon to keep them safe from maurading deer.
Nights are getting chilly and into the low to mid 40's which has been great for sleeping!
