Hi! I'm new here, so I figured this would be a great first post to respond to! I got my very first bunny, a Torty Lionhead (Harper ) on July 9, 2021. I haven't had her very long, but she already has a strong hold of my heart. It's taken me 30 yrs to get my first bunny and she's more amazing than I ever dreamed she would be. She was only a month old when I got her, so this whole bunny/hooman thing is extremely new to us. We have a lot to figure out together and so far we're doing pretty well. I may end up being a "regular" in here because I have so many questions.
YES. I have an electric stove, but use it maybe 3 times a year. The rest of the time I cook on the wood stove in winter when I'm heating anyway - or, all summer long, outdoors on an improvised rocket stove (well, by now it's pretty well engineered, with contuored chimney, pre heated secondary air, and mostly stainless steel construction). Sometimes I even skip the lighter and use the fire drill or magnifying glass to start the fire. I gather twigs and branches along the creek and in the woods, and I dry all the wood stuff my rabbits get to gnaw on through winter for cooking purposes.
Since I cook in rather big batches I freeze a part of it, and use the microwave to heat it (if I remember to put it out in the morning to thaw for dinner)
TPBM uses a cellar to store apples, potatoes, and other stuff for winter.
Indeed. I take it as an oppurtunity to learn some bits and bobs of foreign languages. I am so used to sound that i can't even fall asleep in stark silence, i need at least the sound of a ticking clock.
