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.
