Other than great hay, there is nothing better than a huge variety of leaves, flowers, sticks, and other plant bits. If you are lucky enough to have a garden, you’ve got food! A lot of these things can be done in containers, and even indoors, so if you don’t have 40 acres, don’t worry. (here’s a great guide to container gardening from Mother Earth News) If you have a “black thumb”, and can’t seem to grow anything at all, check out these tips from Real Simple.

Here are suggestions for things everybun will love:
Calendula (has to be calendula, not what are typically called marigolds)
Oat, wheat, and rye grasses
Carrots (not for the orange root, but for the leafy tops!)
Beets (for leafy tops)
Radishes (for the tops)
Of course, no pesticides on these plants, and if you can use nice compost that is even better. Remember how sensitive our little friends are to chemicals and toxins.
Go on out to the garden, and maybe even take your rabbit with you! (The only help you’ll get from them is maybe “thinning” the plants, but they’ll have a great time.)
