Society of Feline Gardeners-Thursday In The Garden With Jonesie

::Meowwww::

I had a pretty good week in the garden.  My mom and dad are still slacking but that doesn't mean I can't stay busy and help them out.  What would they do without me to keep the garden under semi-control?  The weather wasn't too bad and we had a few sunbeams mixed in with the rain. 

The grass is starting to grow again so the yard is a bit messy right now.  Dad said he won't mow for another couple of weeks so that means lots of yummy grass to nibble.

There are still raspberries growing.  Mom keeps eating them.  There are not very many and the ones that ripen are not nearly as flavorful as the ones that grew earlier this summer.  Mom thanks me for each and every one of them.  She said she appreciates everything I grow for her.

I could sure use Grete woofie's help...now where is she?

Sheesh...off in the woods playing with her squeaky ball.  Do you know that she chases squirrels with the squeaky ball in her mouth? She squeaks the ball at the squirrels instead of barking at them!  It makes me purr since Grete is so silly.  Mom says she doesn't want to think what would happen if Grete didn't have the ball in her mouth.  The squirrels are safer as long as my woofie sister has her ball.

Ah yes...one of the last tomatoes of the year.

Your Mom sure is lucky to have you tending to the garden. Those raspberries and tomato look so yummy! I laughed at the thought of Greta running after the squirrels, squeeking.

That Grete sure is silly, but we are glad she is there to offer some protection!

Wow! That is excellent. You know what? One of these weeks I might actually get to participate in the Feline Gardeners. We have a balcony with plants right now and I like going out on it! The Woman is very surprised at me as I normally don't like to go outside. Enjoy your fall yard!

We are convinced that Grete and Tommy are true soulmates in sweetness!

Great job in the garden, Jonesie!

Its funny thinking of Grete squeakin at the skwerls!

CCL Wendy said...

I see it's still pretty green where you are. It doesn't quite yet look like fall. You're even still getting some yummy looking stuff out of your garden.

Grete seems to be having a ball -- even with her mouth full!

Great job once again, Jonesie!
