Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie

::Meowwww::

Welcome back to my garden!  It's a good thing that I got some work done last weekend.  We had a big rain and wind storm move in on Wednesday so I won't be headed back to the garden any time soon.

I had a VERY productive weekend and I can hardly wait to show you!

Let's get this party started mom.  My club members are here... 

Do I have to claw your leg to get your attention?

There, that's better!  I love you too mom.

Now...on to my garden.

Dad got out his shovel when I pawed at the beet garden.  I reminded him that the beets were telling me that it was time to come out of the dirt.  I could tell by the way the dirt felt under my paws that they were ready, but sometimes you have to listen too.

Yes dad...the potatoes wanted to come out too.

Good job Dad.  You know what?  I'm a great gardener, but when it comes to digging out the veggies, my paws need help.  Dad is much more talented with a shovel than I'll ever be.

See what teamwork can do?  There were carrots that were ready to harvest so we dug them up too.  One of the best things about being a garden cat is being able to provide for my family.  They always oooh and aaaaah when they see what I've grown.  It's a much better response than showing up with a deaded mousie.

I always wait for Dad when he puts away the garden tools.  I wouldn't dream of leaving him alone to do that by himself.

So...when you saw Figgy and Bennette snoozing earlier this week?  Yeah...I was there too with Dad.  After a hard day's work in the garden, we deserve a rest.

Purrs.

That is a great harvest, Jonesie! I am quite impressed. Sadly I don't even have a dead mouse for my human... the best I ever come up with is a dead cricket with one of the back legs already missing! (Can I help it if I like to nibble?)

Jonesie, we can't believe how hard you worked to get all those veggies! Good job!!

Those veggies look so yummy, our Mommy was drooling over the carrots. We gave up on bringing her mousies, that just made her shriek, so we eats them ourselves.

Cat said...

You sure do deserve a rest Jonesie! What a great crop of veggies you have grown for your family, I am particularly fond of beetroot :-)

Simba said...

That is an amazing harvest, Jonesie. You have a terrific garden.

Great looking veggies. We tried a garden here in Dallas last year but found out that when it is over 100 degrees most days and goes 8 weeks without ANY rain, things just don't seem to grow!

ABBY said...

Oooh...Aaaaah...Those veggies look yummy! Your family is very lucky to have such a skilled and talented master gardener to help them grow such beautiful veggies.

Glogirly and Katie said...

You do a wonderful job with your garden. Glogirly can't grow a thing. She's pathetic. ...or just lazy. But your garden is very inspiring. : )

It's the last week of Searching For A Girl! Just a few more chapters left. We hope you can stop by!
