Raising rabbits for Meat

I am looking for a breeding set of 3 (2 does & 1 Buck) rabbits to raise for meat. I am looking for nz white preferably but am open to other meat breeds as well. I am close to Rotorua, so would be best if its within the BOP or waikato. Ive got no problem with hunting rabbits just looking to add a more consistent amount to the table. Please let me know if there is all ready a group or discussion about this, that I couldn't find.See More

one of the larger hardneck garlic bulbs from this season

waited until the scape was completely unfurled before I harvested this one, just on 7cm diameter. Left the scape on so that I'll have plenty of bulbils for growing.

A storage container with many of my seeds in it was accidently moved to our shed. The shed gets warm in Summer, so is not an ideal place for storing seed.

When I finally tracked the container down and rescued it I found that mice had got in and eaten some of my…

Patience

Some citrus this year, mandarins, oranges, limes, grapefruit. Should have put in the persimon in year one. I've put in asparagus three years late. The bed in front of the west facing wall is very hot and dry. Good for melons and grapes. Have moved the rhubarb to a better irrigated spot with deep soil. Passionfruit seed has germinated. I have to figure out how to contain the chooks but still let them forage. They seem to be happier on everyone else's property and I think it's grass they…
