Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie


Meow! Hope you haven't shared the super secret password with any non-felines...so shhh!  Say it softly ::meow::   Welcome back to my garden! Even though it's winter I've been super busy snoopervising all the garden stuff.   Plus I have to plan for what to plant this spring.  I'm going to spend my weekend pawing through the seed Cat-a-log so I can help mom place an order.


Dad wanted to dig this past weekend so I agreed to help.

Turns out we had carrots and parsnips lurking under the dirt!  I actually knew it all along, but if I hadn't pawed at the dirt and made a fuss, Dad never would have found anything!


You know what?  Parsnips are fun!!!  Dad and mom like to eat them, but they make great toys to whap!


You can't work all the time my furriends!


Please leave a link and let me know what's going on in your garden this week!!

Yep, that's right, Jonesie...all work and no play makes for no fun!!

Kea said...

Jonesie, you are terrific help to your dad, we're very impressed.

But...You have green grass! *Sob!* We're deep in the middle of winter here...sob, sob, sob.

the casbah kitten said...

Oh wow! We gotta grow some of those things!! And Momma is inspired by your raspberries...she wants to plant some kind of berries. That would be cool because it would make a JUNGLE for us to hide in!

The Whiskeratti said...

We probably wouldn't make good gardeners but we sure could whap stuff well.

Furkidsmom said...

We sooooooo wish we had a garden like you do, Jonesie. We have been watching you closely and think we could be good gardeners. xxxxxxxxxx

The Kitty Krew said...

You look like you're having fun whapping the parsnips, Miss Jonesie! You're such a good gardener, it's good that your dad had you to point out those carrots and parsnips or he'd never have found them.

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Junior and Orion said...

Parsnips? They look funky!!

Eric and Flynn said...

Our mum grows carrots and parsnips too. We like to play THoE through the leaves in the summer.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow, carrots and parsnips - that is cool that they are still there! And that parsnip really does look like a great toy!

Brian said...

I sure do enjoy seeing you having fun in the garden instead of working all the time. Way to go!

Alasandra said...

Fresh carrots has our Mom salivating, even with a cold. Good thing they have you to dig the good stuff up. It is raining here today (sigh). ~AFSS

WhimPurr's Whim said...

Fantastic work fur uncovering the parsnips! *purrs*

katztales said...

We're chasing lizards! We're jealous of your parsnips. Yummy...

Fin said...

Parsnips are fun looking.

Mom is thinking of getting a little raised bed and doesn't know what to plant. She'd like tomatoes and cherry tomatoes for sure.

Gandalf, Grayson, Whitey and Gracie said...

We have never seen a parsnip 'cuz Mom gates them. In fact, her entire face grimaced as soon as she saw the word 'parsnip"! That was funny, Jonesie!

PS. Hi, Cory! Soft, rumbly purrs to you xo

we didn't get outside on Thursday so we enjoyed being 'out' via you. Love Darcy and Bing xx

Glogirly and Katie said...

If I had a garden, it would be buried deep, deep in the snow! And it's STILL snowing! I do have a couple feeble houseplants, but I don't think they count.

It's fun to see you in your garden!

Happy Super Bowl Weekend!

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

Sorry I am late for the Thursday meeting but I see it is still going on. I didn't know that these things could live under the ground for such a long time until you found them. You are one smart kittie and I bet are lots of help to the dad.
See you tomorrow for the big game!

Ayla and Iza said...

We cant garden right now. We have 2' of snow an the ground is frozen stiff!

The good news is that we are ready to plant seeds inside in 2 weeks and some about each week after that. We are lookin fer our best tomatoes ever this year. And we are trying new stuff like celery and parsnips!

CCL Wendy said...

Sorry, I missed this on Thursday, Jonesie. I just love reading about you and your antics in the garden. You're so lucky that you can actually do things actively. That's really cool about having carrots and parsnips under all that dirt. I'll bet you were a real big help digging them up. You sure have a good sniffer.

Cliff and Olivia said...

We haven't been to our garden for a month. So we're not jealous, no-no.

Those parsnips looks like loads of fun.

Daisy said...

I think bringing pink panties to a party is always a good idea!

Oopsie, I seem to have left this message on the wrong post! ::blushes::
