I wanted to share some pics of my lettuce plants. I made my MM with only 4 composts because thats all I could find at the time, and one of them was worm casings.

After reading on the forums how much everybody liked rabbit poo... I found some organic poo on ebay, of all places.

These 2 lettuce pots were planted at the same time in the same mix, but one seemed to be doing much better than the other. I added RP about a week ago to the plant on the right... and look at all the new green growth Very Happy

After pic... lots of new growth on right

This pic is from a week before adding the rabbit poo. The pot in question is now on the left.

I really like this stuff! BTW... it was uncomposted pellets.

LOL... I've been eating the lettuce... it just keeps growing! I only take a few leaves at a time from the outside, from the big plants rock on

I used ebay as a last resort because I dont have any rabbit poo nearby and I'd have to drive about an hour to a farm, so I figured, what the heck. I either had to pay shipping or gas. I had to hide that purchase from the husband Embarassed

You know, I would really like that. They're very gentle and fluffy creatures. But I live in a community where we cant have farm animals outside, and I already have 2 cats inside that love to hunt No . Aren't rabbits happier outdoors anyway?

Cheers back to you, Bob Look what Rabbit Poo can do! 3170584802 At least you have options with that pen. It's very odd to like poo... but I really like rabbit poo! I had some Hen poo mixed in my original MM but the rabbit poo really appears to be like rocket fuel, as I believe Plantoid said.

Ok so now that we pretty mush ascertained that rabbit poo is great for the garden, my next ? Is what about the pee part of the waste ? I have the lumber to built a rabbit hutch and what I was thinking of doing was making some sort of catch pan under it so it falls in a tub to carry and put on the garden. Can they both be put in the garden or do I need to devise a way to drain off the pee and jus use the poo ? Any thoughts or advice on this ??
