Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie

::3 paw taps::

Looks like the visitor to our garden last week has not come back around.  It might be because of all the awful weather and rain.  Maybe he forgot the super secret password?

There is SO much to do this time of year.  I had to help mom and dad plant our vegetable garden this past weekend.  There was no time to waste.  If it didn't get planted this weekend it wasn't going to happen at all!  I had to put my paw down.  Figaro, who was being a pest had to be put in his place.  I had to hiss at him.  Once I did that he was a model assistant gardener.  He even sat on mom's shoulder and purred as she planted corn.

Once mom put the lettuce and basil in the ground I had to do my walk through inspection.

Cecilia was VERY helpful and made sure the carrot seeds were placed correctly.

Dad gave me a lift so I could inspect our new peach tree.  There are tiny little fuzzy baby peaches on it!  It's important as a garden cat to get an assist to get a good look at stuff that you can't reach on your own.

It's helpful to purr while you do this.

Once the hard work was over, Grete and I hung out and enjoyed the few dry moments of the weekend.

I hope you are getting purrfect gardening weather.  If you are, please send some our way before the rain and slugs take us over!

Looking good in your garden! Ours is just puttering along--except the radishes. They should be ready to go anytime now!

How cool that your humans get to grow peaches. My human loves nothing more than peaches fresh off the tree, but they won't grow right in hot, deserty southern California weather. She knows this because she grew up in the San Fernando Valley with a sad, hapless peach tree.

Rain and cold weather here! Our tomatoes are very unhappy. We planted carrots too, Baby Babettes. We couldn't believe how tiny the seeds are. They are shivering in the ground now. Looking forward to some sunshine soon. (like, next week?)

You've all been busy in your garden, what with the veggie planting! It seems that you've had some good help from Cecilia and even Figaro, once you straightened him out.

We wish you all a sunny, dry week!

Great work getting all those plants in. Snoopervising can get tiring. Our weather has been so hot and humid, but now for the next few days we get a break and have gorgeous, cooler dryer air. Mom says she's glad she won't feel like she's melting now.

Junior and Orion said...

Great job Jonesie! You are a superb snoopervisor!

CCL Wendy said...

I'm so happy to see you were able to get everything under control at last, Jonesie! You can't control the weather, but you can influence your parents and furblings. Well done!

It's great to see you back at doing what you do so well. And tell your Mommy, I'll really enjoying her new camerawork. That close-up profile of you is simply fabulous my dear!

ABBY said...
