Recycle Your Carrot Tops

If you have rabbits, don't throw away your carrot tops. You can grow a free and delicious treat for your furry friends.

Just cut about a half an inch of the carrot top off and place in a shallow dish of water. It takes a few days to a week to see sprouts. When they get to be a few inches tall, like the ones in the picture, I trim them down and give them to the bunnies. The tops are sometimes slimy from sitting in the water, so I don't give them the orange top.

You can regrow the greens a couple of times, but eventually the tops will stop producing and you'll have to replace them with new tops. Your rabbits will absolutely love them!
