Introduction: Its All About Cycling

I raise rabbits. In addition to making great pets and nutritious food, they also supply one of the best natural fertilizers out there.

Step 1: Pick a Spot

I chose this overgrown area that does not get too much direct sunlight. Where I live in Virginia, sometimes plants just cannot stand direct sunlight all day in addition to the oppressive summer heat.

Step 2: Dig

I don't use a tiller. I use a pitch fork to remove the weeds and turn the soil.

Step 3: Recycle

Next I recycle the weed into food for the rabbits.

Step 4: Yum

They enjoy the fresh greens and the fiber is good for their diet.

Then they do the natural thing and poop.

Step 5: Another Step in the Cycle

Chickens actually enjoy eating the rabbit droppings. After they have scratched through and taken what they have wanted from the fresh dropping, the manure is ready to go into the garden.

Step 6: Good Eggs

Of course first the chickens make some fresh delicious eggs.

Step 7: Plant & Fetilize

Here I have planted some spaghetti squash and added a wheel barrow full of rabbit droppings.

Everyone is happy!
