Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie


Meow!  Welcome back to my garden.  I had such a great time in the yard last week I could hardly contain myself.  Dad was doing a bunch of work and I was thrilled to be able to snoopervise.  He wouldn't be able to do it all without me.   I meowed and I pawed the dirt and I ran up and down trees...


I got yard stuff stuck in my floofy bum...


When dad took a break, I washed up.  A garden cat shouldn't be afraid to get a little dirty, but you have to keep your machine clean.


When dad started taking the work too seriously, I reminded him that we need to play too. 


Of course there was real work to be done too.  I helped dad transplant some blueberry and raspberry plants.   It was really hard work, so Grete decided to put her paws in the dirt to help us.  I'm really proud of her.  Dad wrote about all the things he did this past weekend here, but don't be fooled.  He couldn't have done it without me.

.
My seedlings are coming along too...you can see where I put my paw in the dirt to test the soil again.  Don't worry, I remembered to wash my paws before I came back in the house. 


Don't forget to leave a link and let me know what's going on in your garden.

Lots of interesting things going on in your garden, Jonesie. You are a great helper and it's always important to remind your humans about play time.

I loved your pictures of you snoopervising everything - makes me feel almost like I am there!

hey, those seedlings are amazing - nothing is growing over at our place at the moment. The thing about fluffy legs is that they attract garden stuff! Love Darcy and Bingley xx

You're so lucky to get out in your garden and do things. Ours is still snowed in and frozen. We're feeding the birds and making a list for seeds to buy but that's about it. LOVE the floof photo!!

Forever Foster said...

You are a gardener extraordinaire, Miss J. We applaud you:)

The Island Cats said...

Jonesie, you are lucky you can still go in your garden...ours is covered with snow...

Kea said...

Fabulous job in the garden! We are so jealous here, since we won't see bare ground until March or April. And there won't be any planting until the latter part of May. *SOBS*

The Paw Relations said...

Wow! You certainly got a lot of work done in the garden.

Once the snow goes we hope to start working in our garden.

Your Dad must be so thankful to have such a good pair of helpers. It's nice to see Grete working with you!

We are, as always, impressed by your gardening talents and hard work, Jonesie, but this week, we are quote overwhelmed by your splendid FLOOF!

The Kitty Krew said...

You're doing such a great job with your garden this winter, Jonesie! We hope Alfie will feel better after he gets to come visit you, we know he's quite bummed about not getting out in his.

And that belleh shot! The floof! You're gorgeous.

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

The Monkeys said...

This year is going to be the best garden ever!

Brian said...

You sure did do a lot of good supervising!!! I wish we had a garden, but we just have a yard...with birds, squirrels, chipmunks, ducks, geese, turtles!!!

Busby and Raymond said...

Jonesie your floof is magnificent! And your tree climbing skills are wonderful.

Our Mom planted our "green manure" crop of mustard a couple weeks ago, and now all the seeds are sprouting. In the Spring she will pull the mustard up and work it back into the soil. The decomposing mustard plant adds nutrients to the soil. Other than that, our sweet peas are coming up. We had a good inch of rain this past week, with much more on the way next week. We need the rain! xo, Raymond and Busby

You are such a great snoopervisor, Jonesie. And it was really sweet of Grete to help with the digging. We would love to have a garden, but live in an apartment complex and have no place for one (other than pot plants on the tiny patio).....so we are very thankful we can enjoy your garden with you......xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Lucky lucky, theres still white stuff on my yard....

Daisy said...

Jonesie, you look so proud and happy in that first photo! As well you should be!

Ginger Jasper said...

I am sure you dad realy appreciated all the help. You did a great job.. Hugs GJ x

Gracie said...

My bum gets dirty sometimes, Jonmesie. But it is not yard dirt.

Catline Crew said...

Looks like you are working very diligently on your garden. Our Mom wishes she didn't have a black thumb.

Eric and Flynn said...

You are doing a good job in the garden Jonesie. All your hard work will pay off in the spring.

Alasandra said...

We need to trim our blueberry bushes. We wonders if raspberries would grow here. We shall have to ask our Daddy.

You are doing a great job Jonesie, we haven't been working in our garden in ages. ~AFSS

CCL Wendy said...

I'm proud of you, too, Jonesie because you are so very devoted. Your dad must really appreciate all your help, and Grete's, too!

Unfortunately, our garden is under several feet of snow, so there's really nothing to be done until we see the grass again.

minekatter said...

Oh, Jonesie, you are a lucky kitty! The garden looks lovely, and so do you! In Norway, we´ve only had snow, snow and snow for several weeks. And it´s icy cold! So no gardening for us yet. Looking forward to summer!

Jonesie, Whimpurr just loves your pretty little mug in that first photo and of course, you have wonderfully floofy tocks too! *purrs*

You did a magnificent job working in the garden and we are purroud of Grete too! Nice job! *purrs and puppy kisses*
