Want to give your guinea pigs a varied diet of fresh greens but don't always have time to wash and dry produce before the family heads out in the morning?
Check out Earthbound Farms' Organic Spring Mix at your local grocery store. It comes pre-washed (triple washed, actually) in a one-pound plastic container. The mixture includes: several types of baby lettuce, red and green chard, mizuna, arugula, mache, frisee, and radicchio. (Product packaging states that ingredients in each container may vary.)
Prices vary slightly from store to store, but the average is about $6.50. For some budgets, the price may be higher than can be spent on a regular basis but including just one container to your pigs' monthly diet can add quite a bit of excitement..and dare I say, decadence...to your pigs' routine. It's a great item to buy for that week that you know you're going to be particularly busy -- or to give your piggies their own special holiday feast.
If you can hang around for a few minutes after you give your pigs a handful of this mix, you'll find the sounds of happy crunching and munching to be the highlight of your day!
