Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie


::Meowwww::

zzzzzzzzz...oh wow!  Sorry about that.  I was taking a snooze in the closet.


So...where was I?  Oh yeah, window snoopervising!  It's my new skill.  So for those "garden" cats out there who fuss about how they can't go outside...they don't have their own yard...I'm here to tell you there are no excuses!  No barriers to you becoming an official Garden Cat!


I admit, I'm lucky.  I've got a great window...and my dad seems to listen to the orders I give him.  I was concerned because I had a feeling in my paws that dad did not dig up all the beets I planted from seed last spring.   I was right!  I meowed at dad to go dig to see what he could find. 

Look!
I'm not a cat who likes to meow I told you so...but in this case....

Mom roasted the beets and made them into a yummy salad.  Cory was in charge of making sure mom took a picture of the salad, but mom and dad scarfed it down so fast there is no photo.

I'm still waiting for dad to fix the fence so I can go outside.  In the meantime, Grete woofie is the only one of us going outside.

She didn't have to rub it in!!!!
 I thought Grete loved me!

Wow, garden left overs! Good call! I hope you get to go into your garden soon, but better safe than sorry!

It's still a bit chilly to want to go out and snoopervise though--but I think gardening plans are in the air! We have blueberry bushes. Now for a nice enough day to plant them...

Wow, your garden just keeps on giving, Jonesie! I do want to say that even though I haven't been posting about it for a few weeks, my catnip is doing well, although my human pinched it back so early it looks more like ground cover than a plant. Maybe this will be a good thing eventually?

We are "thinking" about gardening today ... beets sound very interesting.

MoMo said...

Hi everyone! Yes, I am still around, just have no help with posting and visiting. Our garden looks messy because SS has no time for it. Turning into a jungle soon, with all the rain about.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Tell your dad to take a break from scarfing his food down (tee hee) and FIX the fence. That bit abowt scarfin' made me smile!

Love Alfie xx

The Island Cats said...

Yeah, we are garden cats snoopervising from the windows too, Jonesie. But we still need to take a lesson from you...look at all that stuff your dad found when you told him to look more!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Mommy says we don't really find beets here...and the few that she's seen are the size of limes. She never knew what to do with them though she loves how they look.
We can't wait for your Daddy to get the fence fixed coz we want to see you tend to your garden again.

OH YUMMM - M says those beets look really good too.

We have lots of pretty flowers to show everyone in our post so do come by. Those beets look very yummy, they are huge. Good thing you reminded your Dad about them. ~Scylla

Awww Jonesie, Grete loves you, she just has to be a little bit of a brat some times.

Eric and Flynn said...

Your dad is lucky that he listened to you and found those beets still in the garden.

The Cat From Hell said...

Sigh! Our garden is under a foot of snow! We has had more snow in the last 2 weeks than we has had ALL winter!

Mmmmmm, beets! You have such a good memory Jonesie! You know what's what out there. I say put the Bitey on Dad to get him working on that fence for YOUR yard.

The Human looooooves her beets. I say, Meh.

Forever Foster said...

We let Lishy out in the garden today, and now he is grey. He's the worst gardening cat in town.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Cory, darling, is cheddar the key to your heart?

Huffle Mawson said...

Our fence is broken too. It's very annoying!

AttieCattie said...

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

We hear the late Winter is the BEST time fer beets. Not that WE would eat anny, but TBT likes them.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Okay, my darling Cory, because I am a good and benevolent King, I went to check up on my loyal subject (aka ur boyfriend) Whitey, and it sure sounded like happy news to me! Altho my heart yearns just a little for you, I guess he needs his Cory Girl. Very glad to read he is better.
