Artemis is home

Posted by & filed under livestock.


There’s always a favorite…one you want to spare. This one was mine and now she has a family in Brooklyn to look after her. She’ll be paying for her room and board in manure for their garden.

Neil and I dropped off one of Salad and Ghost’s offspring this afternoon after my beekeeping webinar. Dara from With Love, From Brooklyn took this little gal after she and her three beautiful daughters came by to meet all of the rabbits a few weeks back.

We taught Eva, the oldest of the three, how to pick up the rabbit and hold her properly, how and what to feed her and how to trim her nails. She took to handling Artemis like she had been wrangling rabbits for ages, even coaxing the rabbit to fall asleep in her arms. I feel pretty good about the outcome of this arrangement.

Afterwards Neil and I went around the corner for picadillo and pernil with beans and rice and maduros. I wolfed down my food quitely and tried to ignore the little empty spot, but it’s there and there’s no denying it.
