#RattieTip: Don’t throw away leftover seeds from the pet rat food – look what can grow from it! 😮 #UrbanGardening

Whenever my pet rats don’t finish their rattie food, I throw the leftover seeds into a flower pot.

Whatever grows in there I refer to as our rattie garden. 😉

The ratoots get to roam in their rattie garden and love nibbling on the wheat grass.

Every now and then however, a plant makes it, and breaks through amongst the other seedlings that end up as #RattieTreats.

This plant then gets a chance to grow to its full potential. Such as this sunflower! 😮

Which is doubly useful, as this sunflower in turn will produce seeds which again feed the ratties. 🙂

And of course, it’s also incredibly beautiful. So when the sunflower opens, it features a proper indoor flower pot plant in our kitchen.

Who would’ve thought that it’s all thanks to the ratties! 😀
