Not long ago, I was looking over my monthly expenses and realized...*GASP!*...What the heck happened to my grocery bill?! It used to be so, so...so manageable and small (ish) and, and...gosh, it was even kind of cute!
(Yes, I just said my grocery bill was cute.) He-hem.
A line by line receipt audit revealed the root of the problem: repeated purchases of big-boxed-leafy-dark-green-salad mixes for my buns. WOW, does the cost of these store bought beauties rise quickly when you've got TWO hungry bunnies instead of ONE and they're OM NOM NOMMING their way through several of them each month.
First thought was: I will till the soil and plant my own garden!
Second thought was: No way!
After some reading, research and web browsing, the solution to my dilemma came in the form of pots, pails and - of all things - reusable grocery store bags. Here are two short vids (chosen from the array to be found over the inter web) demonstrating the 'How-To' and the ease of building your own very own container gardens:

For this bunny mama it means an ease on rapid bank account depletion. And for the buns? Fresh yummy greens and herbs all summer long.
Om nom nom! Pics to come!
