Thursday In The Garden With Jonesie


Meow!  January in the garden can be a very wonderful time.   Dad cleared out most of the leaves and the garden beds are almost all cleared out.  I still have a bit of snoopervising to do in the corn bed. 



I use this time of year to reflect on what we did in the garden in 2009 and look forward to what we will plant in 2010.  I'm pretty sure we will move plants around and where we planted squash, there will be tomatoes and the corn will also move to a new spot.  Gotta figure all that stuff out.  Mom and dad rely on me to let them know when I've found the purrfect spot for each plant.  I don't know how they'd figure it out without me.  They promised me even more garden beds and more food production to be snoopervised!  I can hardly wait.



I like where we planted the new herb garden.  I was worried when dad tore out the old bed, but he used the material from the old bed to make the new bed so I was pleased with it.  Our sage plant is still producing lots of little leaves. 


I went into the greenhouse to say goodbye to my little lettuce and Swiss chard seedlings.  When we got the super freezing weather I was sure they were gonners. We don't have a heater in the greenhouse so the temperatures in the 20's were killer.  

Or so I thought.   Do I have a green paw or what?



Guess what?  Mom and dad have started a new garden and food blog of their very own.  I'm sure it won't be as interesting as Cory's, but they said they will likely link to MY posts.  I am a garden cat you know.

We love reading all about your garden and all you do fro it, Jonesie. Right now, we can't even see ours as it is completely under snow!

We put a heater in our greenhouse when it got really cold so everything in there is fine. Our pond actually froze. That hasn't happened in a long time.

We will send Mom over to check out your beans blog, we knows that your gardening post are the best though. ~SSA

Love the garden! We are envious of your greenhouse. We just planted our "green manure" crop of mustard. Our weather has been very strange here on the central coast of California, not enough rain and unseasonably warm. We are putting in a couple new raised beds this Spring.

Purrs from your gardening friends!

JC said...

You did a Purrfect job of helping ...

Gandalf, Grayson and (G)Whitey said...

Hi, Jonesie! We are looking forward to reading your new blog. We left a few comments. One comment was about having trouble reading the comment form so that we could comment. It is messed up, at least for us.

PS. Hi, Cory! xo

Junior and Orion said...

Jonesie, your green paw is amazing!!!!!

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

I would say that you have green paws for sure! There is a lot of planning on next year's harvest and you can never start too early on that. I will be interested in finding out what all you will put in the ground in the spring time.

The Whiskeratti said...

You are such an excellent gardener! We are always very impressed on Thursdays. And that pic in the greenhouse is so very purrfectly snoopervisory.

Tuck said...

This cold weather is just a bummer all around!

Eric and Flynn said...

You really are an excellent gardener to get your seedlings to survive all the very cold weather.

Catline Crew said...

You have a very green paw. We wish our mom had a green thumb. She says she has a black one.

CCL Wendy said...

Wow! Congrats on the new blog, Jonesie! You really deserve your own space because you've sure got lots to say -- all year 'round. And yes, you have a very green paw. Quite amazing!

By the way, Grete and Bennette are on the LOLSpot today.
