Well, as you know, my sister Cory has gotten herself in a bit of trouble. She...stole borrowed a Tillamook Cheese Bus. She thought because she was born in Tillamook that they wouldn't mind.
She said she'd bring it right back. Now I've heard that Alfie and Milo have had their house move delayed for a couple of weeks. Cory's still planning on flying over to England to hang out and have a nice long holiday.
Me...I'm staying here. The weather has been amazing. I'm getting good garden time. At this point, Jonesie has given up on me helping her. I roll in the dirt and cool my belly furs in the grass.
You know, as a Master Gardener, I think it's important that I make sure that I don't do all the work myself. It's important to delegate tasks or else I'll spread myself too thin. My woofie Grete and I have a great relationship. She is big and can cover a lot more ground than I can...so when I ask her to sniff things for me, she always helps.
I love her.
She still needs me to meow instructions so she knows exactly what she needs to do. As long as no squirrels distract her, we're good.
Our new artichoke plants have started to produce.
We did not grow these beets...these were from the farmers market...but Grete woofie sniffed them out for us so we know that mom ended up with the best bunch. I think you saw Cory sticking her head in the bag yesterday. Mom uses a reusable Whole Foods bag when she goes to the farmers market. Yes, all Cory found in the bag were vegetables.
Our day lilies are blooming.
At the end of a hard day's work, my job is still not done. I still need to hang out with my dad and remind him of all the good things we did in the garden today.
Whoa. Things are interesting around here. Today I'm joined in the tattletailing by my sister Cecilia. The news is epic, I tell you....EPIC! Cecilia and I have been hanging out on our deck with the cool chairs and cushions...but someone else has been around here.
Yeah Ginger, you tell it like it is. The second we turn our backs on the deck..."someone" is lurking. You can't fool us.
You may need to biggify to see the little trespasser. Look at that fuzzy head, poking up from behind the deck..under the table.
And there he/she is! In plain sight! Some cats have no sense of respect for the property of others.
What? You mean mom encouraged invited him/her?
pee ess- we don't remember if mom told you but there has been a Meezer hanging out in our yard over the last many months. It has been meowing outside our window at night, but we've never seen it during the day. We have never been able to get close enough to even take a photo. Turns out the little mite has been meowing at our next door neighbors window too. They have been feeding this little one day and night and now it will come up to them, although they still can't touch him. The trap will be coming out soon and the little one will get neutered/spayed. We still don't know if it's a he or a she...but we thing it's looking good that our neighbor will adopt this one if it gets along with their 2 other cats.
It takes strong paws to manage a big garden. I think I'm up to the challenge. If you are new to gardening, please take time to toughen up your paws. Start out easy and work your way up. I didn't become a garden genius overnight. It took time and lots of practice.
If your paws get tired and hot, cool them in sweet green grass.
I always make sure I take time to relax after a long day snoopervising. I think you heard that dad messed up the camera settings. Mom took this wonderful shot of me modeling by the garden beds. I liked it well enough to post. Ignore the overexposure.
I've been purring over the basil and it's responding nicely. I think pesto is in our future.
Ah yes, dad harvested the garlic. Pesto is definitely in our future!
Oh how wonderful it is. I know the days are starting to get shorter, but our weather has been amazing and I'm loving every minute of it.
