Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie and friends

The garden is getting to the point where I can help contribute to dinner. Let's see what we can put together today.
The basil is looking good. We also have a good patch of garlic going...

Yes, Ginger...we have salad greens and if you wouldn't squish the radishes, we could have some of those too.
You can't squish the food Ginger, you need to sit near it but not ON it!

Ok Bennette, you can help too. How about picking some nasturtiums for our salad. I bet there are kitties out there who don't know that if Ginger squishes your radish plants, you can use nasturtium blossoms in your salad because they taste spicy like radishes. They are pretty too.

Let's put it all together for mom and dad! Bon Appetite!
Pesto pasta and salad all from our garden! Ok, I didn't grow the noodles or the pine nuts...a girl can't do it all.
PS...not pictured...chick-hen. We don't want you to think us kitties are fegans!!!! Not even Cory.

A big round of applause for Jonesie! It must be such a satisfying feeling to know that you have grown your own dinner. And flowers in your salad! It's like you're eating at a fancy restaraunt:)

You've done a good job in the garden Jonesie. Mum used to groe Nastursiums and put them in the salad, but she got fed up with the caterpillars attacking them, so doesn't grow them any more.

Jonesie did a great job picking out stuff fur dinner! And I don't blame you fur not showing the chick-hen -- that would have been all too tempting. I think Ginger was trying to help in her own way, but it's a good thing Jonesie was snoopervising!
