Crop Watch - Thursday in the Garden

::Three Paw Taps::

Hi friends! Let's take a look at what a week of high quality cat sniffs can do to a garden.

Wow, look at the Tomatoes!
We had to move all the plants around cause it was too hard to harvest.

Yep my sniffer has been very busy to excellent results. We have already harvested 5 baby squashes, 1 pea pod, and two green beans. Well the garden isn't going to feed the family yet, but it's getting there.

We had a scary moment the other day when the first bug was spotted by Mom. Luckily it was only two ladybugs "doing it" (eating breakfast that is) on the squash leaves. Mom yelled out that it wasn't a bed and breakfast and was about to shoo them away when I reminded her they eat other bugs and disaster was adverted.

  16. Fin, that is such a terrific garden and it is all because of your sniffing. So who got to eat the two green beans?? Soon you will be having tomatoes three times a day. Hope you like tomato sandwiches. So keep that great cat sniffing up Fin. Looking forward to next week.

  19. Lady Bugs are very helpful! Glad your mom realized not to kill them! Even if they weren't helpful they are too pretty to kill!

    Your garden looks simply delicious!

    Enjoy!

  20. Cat sniffing does wonders for plants, don't they? It's like those Miracle Grow commercials, except with a cat sniffing plants instead of people talking about potting soil. :)

  22. wow oh wow, your tomato plants are HUGE already. Mine are two inches. :-( I'm thinking I need to relocate to Nevada, as it seems your growing season is a lot longer than mine!!

  23. Farmer Finny!!! You get a gold star for saving the wonderful ladybugs. They are the one bug that we want in our yard...did you know that mom and dad actually bought a bag of them and released them into our garden?

    Purrs,
