    Traven is darling! My daughter had a Netherland Dwarf named Mimi...then we found out from the vet that Mimi really should be named Max. How embarrassing! ;-) Congrats on being Farmer of the Day!

    I raised rabbits for several years. Are yours pets or part of your productive backyard? Or both?

    Congrats on farmer of the day. I have five raised beds in the backyard. The harvest time for this year is just about over.

    Cute bunny. I raised rabbits once many years ago. Amos and Andy were there names. They finally died of old age at about 8 years old.
