Guinea pigs and rabbits.

Category: Gardening tips. | Posted: Wed Feb 01, 2006 4:42 pm

Yes you did read the title correctly. Even your pets can be of use in your garden!!!

Use the straw from the weekly changes of the guinea pig or rabbit hutch. Put it in the bottom of your pea and bean trenches. A 2" layer of this straw, together with the droppings, will give a nitrogen rich boost to your plants as well as helping to conserve water in the soil.

those are the best tips I have seen! There is a lot of experience and love in those tips. I already know I will use the baking soda, milk and oil to kill the scale bugs on my aloes. Will have to return each time I have a problem. For anybody who might be interested, my aloe's blog is on this site.

Thanks Aloes!!! These tips were gathered from my own personal experience as an organic gardener and from close friends who garden the same way as I do.

Eileen my grandfather had lots of rabbits and he used their droppings for fertilizer and had the best garden I've ever seen!!
