I must gush with enthusiasm for a moment

I have so many posts I'm working on and am impatient to catch everyone up with our process of the past few months, so that I can move onto current interests and observations! Please be patient. What I've noticed in the blogs I like to read is that if there are too many posts in a short period of time, I tune them out. So my goal is to post 1-2 times per week only. However, due to the aforementioned impatience, I think I'm going to break that rule just to get this blog started. So for the next few weeks, I will attempt to write 3-4 posts a week until we're mostly caught up. Please bear with me!

I have to take a moment to express my gratitude to the Boulder Culinary Gardener's group, and the amazing expert gardeners there that are helping me learn so much. I posted my desire to find a cheap bobcat to scrape the grass from my yard, and the need to find dirt, and got great responses, encouraging me to try sheet-mulching instead- saves money while allowing me to benefit from soil that is decidedly rich in nutrients and worms without tilling.  I decided to give it a go, but found I am lacking in enough good manure for the project. I posted that need, and already have more than enough being offered! I also posted that I'm looking for a variety of rabbit-safe tree trimmings and such, and have had invitations to come harvest what I need from a number of generous folks. Now I just need to find the time to take advantage of their offers!

In the meantime, a friend sent me this very useful bit of information about how rabbits see, which helps me better understand their behavior. I hope you enjoy it too.
