Has anyone ever tried making their own hay?
I've got quite a big front garden, and on Monday I picked loads of grass, and left it in the sun to dry, then put it under a heat lamp for a couple of hours when it started to get dark. I don't like the thought of my rabbits eating weedkiller and other things that could be found in fields, so I decided to make my own. Plus, I heard that Hay loses a lot of its nutrients after 10 days of picking. I also tried drying dandelions too.

I live on a huge yard and one summer I made my own hay. The grass was pretty long so i took a scissor and started snipping away. I dried the grass for two days. and gave it to my bunnies. They just loved it! I want to dry my own hay next year too. It's really easy.
