Later this morning Elizabeth delivered a whopping ten babies! I'm so glad Caduci had hers first... That means Elizabeth's babies are the R litter, which will mean #4 will have an easier time naming her babies (since Elizabeth is her rabbit).
I calculated this out... Follow with me for a moment. We currently have seven bunnies for sale (Jensen, Kai, Kin, Kenny, Lorelei, Lilith, and Lucien). Alice has four babies in the nest box, Fern has nine, both litters will be ready in three weeks. Now Feather has eight, Snowflake has eight, Caduci has four, and Elizabeth has ten in the nest boxes. That's a grand total of 50 babies! Wow! That's a lot of rabbits! Add in that we still have the four does we sold a week and a half ago (they're set to be picked up Monday), and the two we're keeping back for future breeding projects... That's 56 baby bunnies we have at the moment. That's crazy! No wonder our feed bill is so high! My priority right now is to find homes for Jensen, Kin, and Kai as they are the biggest ones that need to go the soonest.
We got the official paperwork in the mail today. We have an appointment to sign for the house next Thursday. I'm really excited.
Today Tony fixed the kitchen sink. I cleaned it out and did some dishes this evening. While we were at the store getting supplies to fix the faucet I took a peek at the (clearance-priced) vegetables in the garden center. We snagged some tomatoes for 72-cents, and some other tomatoes and peppers for 47-cents, and one big tomato plant (one of the purple varieties that turns deep purple and has the same anthocyanins as blueberries) for $1.50. We also bought some 5-gallon buckets and some smaller buckets (rebate makes them free). Now I just need to drill more holes.
Tony drilled holes in ten buckets before we ran to the store, so I got some of the greenhouse plants into buckets. I still have winter sown plants and greenhouse plants that need to go into buckets. Now I have more from Menards. But at those prices, you can't really go wrong!
