One of the favorite herbs we feed our rabbits was not mentioned, but it’s fennel. We spent about $15 on little fennel plants a few weeks ago, planted them in a big pot in a sunny spot on the deck, and they are really doing well. Priscilla and Ryan devoured some as a special treat after dinner last night. There used to be lots and lots of fennel planted where we used to live, so we harvested and dried quite a lot, and gave it to them as treats over the winter. Maybe we should give basil, mint, oregano, lemon balm and rosemary a try also.
