However, I asked my husband to dig some holes using his post hole attachment on his bobcat (skid steer). Then I chucked in organic matter/paper/cardboard, and refilled. Trees planted in these holes are 5 times the size in just one season. The holes seem to hang on to moisture too, so everything is surviving. I am looking forward to next summer, to see if there is another growth spurt once the rain arrives.

Much as I like the idea of not having to muck out a stable of them, I know I also read that part of their diet is actually supposed to be supplemented by eating some of their own poop. I have no idea how that's supposed to work, but there you go. I'd be afraid that if they had no access to any poop ever sitting around they might actually have a nutritional deficiency.
But then again, I only know what I've read. I never even raised a hamster.
