The garden harvest for today included three cucumbers (two Spacemaster 80, one Double Yield) and a handful of assorted beans. I actually didn't know we had any on the Spacemaster 80 plant. It was supposed to be a bush variety but it has climbed the trellis, moved across the entire length of the 5-foot trellis, and taken over half of the section with the okra and eggplant. I accidentally found two hanging on the end trellis, and while checking on the okra, I found another two down by the ground on the other side of the trellis. I picked two and left the smaller two to grow for a bit longer.
Two of Snowflake's babies looked a little funny in the nest box, and I had my suspicions, but now that they are out and about, I've confirmed my suspicion. Two out of the six have a Rex coat. So much for being New Zealand Whites! The two have a plush coat with crimped whiskers. They aren't as good a coat quality as a purebred rex, but they're definitely rex coated. They will remain the same price ($30 each). I'm considering pairing Jack Frost to Cinder to see if they would produce some rex coated babies too (since Cinder is a purebred Rex). I'm not sure how many more litters I want to deal with this year with the possibility of a move in the future, and the rabbit market quickly coming to an end (as it does every fall and winter here in Minnesota).
We are hoping to call a different bank tomorrow morning to see about setting up an appointment to go over financials (again) to see if we quality for a different type of loan that may give us a little more hope of finding something in our meager price range. Honestly, I don't understand any of it. I don't understand why it's more difficult to get a big loan when you've managed your money appropriately and never had to ask for a loan before... Why it's easier to get a loan when you are perpetually in debt by getting loan after loan after loan. This system is completely backwards.
