Meow! Happy Earth Day! I'm so excited to have a whole day dedicated to the Earth! What are you doing to honor the day? Wouldn't it be great if each of us kitties had new catnip planted in our honor?
I had to give it a lot of thought. I thought one good way to celebrate the earth was to honor our friendly and helpful earthworms. We have lots of them in the garden and we have to be careful when we dig so we don't harm them. They make sure our soil is nice and wonderful!
Another cool thing to do is lots of planting of new plants. I was thinking that our normal garden stuff didn't quite count because most of them are annuals. I still snoopervised the planting of our cooler weather friends like lettuce, spinach, kale and broccoli.
It's important to make sure you add stuff to the dirt. Dirt just doesn't do well on it's own. Earthworms help, but our dirt likes peat moss and perlite and compost mixed in.
Final inspection is always my favorite part.
Now for the really special news. For Earth Day, it's good to plant something permanent that will grow and stay for years to come. I sort of snoopervised the planting of our very own mini vineyard! I sort of did it because the rototiller scared me so I kept my distance. I'll give it closer inspection this coming weekend to make sure it's all settled in properly. It will be several years before mom and dad can make wine, but it should be lots of fun.
I'm tired! Time to nap in the decomposed leaves!Be sure to leave a link!
