Diät? / Diet?
No, of course not! I'm not crazy and life is much too short for a diet. This is the menu for my rabbits. Yesssss, only fork and knife is missing, isn't it?!
Tipp hier. Auch Kohl darf verfüttert werden, aber man muss die Häschen langsam daran gewöhnen. Meine beiden lieben vor allem Blumenkohl und Brokkoli, was sie natürlich nicht in grossen Mengen erhalten. Ich sag's Euch es macht richtig Spass, den Häschen ein Menü zusammen zustellen und sie liiiiieben es. Hier ein kleiner Auszug aus der Futterliste: Salate, Stangensellerie, Sellerie, Möhrchen, Apfel, Broccoli, Blumenkohl, Birne, Basilikum, Petersilie, Kohlräbli, Gurke, Peperoni (mögen meine nicht), Chinakohl etc. Dazu gibt's noch Äste, Heu, verschiedene getrocknete Kräuter, Blätter und Wurzeln und wenn es der Jahreszeit entspricht natürlich auch Gras.
I used to listen to those who told me that rabbit shouldn't eat a lot of fresh green, carrots are not good for them, hay should be the main feed and please, don't give them any salad at all. But this is all crap! Of course hay is important for them, but have you ever seen a rabbit in the wild that munches only hay???!!! Since a view month I started to feed them after this method. And my rabbits love it as well as I love to put them such a menu together. Even cabbage is allowed but one has to start slowly so that they can get used to it ... with slowly I mean really tiny bits like for an example a leaf not bigger than a thumb. My two rabbits especially love cauliflower and broccoli. But here some things from their feeding list: salads, apple, celery, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, pear, parsley, basil, chinese cabbage and many things more. Of course they also get hay, little branches, different kind of dry herbs, leaves and roots and in the season fresh grass too.
This is more my gusto... LoL. Well, I guess not as healthy as the above plate would be, but sooooo delicious. There's a saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"... well that may be true, but I believe more in "A little piece of chocolate a day, keeps the psychiatrist away."
In one of my next posts I will tell you for what I used this tuna mousse... and of course you will get the recipe but first I have to put it into the fridge for some hours.
And in the meantime I give you a short glimpse into my Gwundergarden... who is a bit chaotic at the time.
No that isn't meant as art in the garden... it's winter protection for the rose tree. I take old tights and put leaves into them before wrapping it around the heart of the rose. Please don't look to close... I could have wrapped it better.
This time I try to leave my little fig tree outside during winter. When it is getting colder I will take it closer to the house under the shelter. What do you think? May it survive like this?
No, my name isn't Christo nor Christa... but my rose pots have all become a winter coat. So, Winter, if you like, you may come now... the garden and I are ready for you.
Habt ein schönes Herbstwochenende! / Have a lovely fall weekend
