Our Garden as Shown by Shoko

 

The garden has been grown’ something awesome in the last couple of weeks.                                                                This is how the flower garden looked at the end of winter.  Disgusting isn’t it?  We had very little snow and very, very cold weather.  We lost almost all our perennials.  What are those blue patches you ask?  They are piles of fertilizer to kill the weed called Horse’s Mane.  This weed has elastic roots and if you grab it to pull it out….the spores disperse throughout the garden.  Each spore starts a new Horse’s Mane.

                                                                              It is easy to see where the weed is dying from the fertilizer.  One must have patience as the dying must happen underground too.  So we have patches of dead Horse’s Mane lying all over the garden.  The girls are not interested.

                                                                    The flower garden is small but the perennials will grow and be much bigger next year.

 Our squash patch was much the same…nekked!

 Kinda depressing work, when I look at it now.                                                                              We even lost all our strawberries.  Such a pile of work.

                                                                         There are still many vacant areas and the plants are slow….especially the cucumbers.

                                                                            This is the veggie garden in June before the hot weather.

I toiled all day in the veggie garden.  Only coming in for naps and food.  I worked my paws to the bone.  I think it was worth it.

                                                                      Mom is having cauliflower and beet greens from my veggie garden.

                                                                            Hi Cow Kitty, quite the amount of nip plants this year.  I count 4 but they’re rather squished now. MOL

What’s that Cow Kitty doing, Shoks?                                                                           It’s ok, Kali.  Cow Kitty is havin’ some nip but there’s 4 plants out there.  We won’t run out.

Well, there’s our garden so far.  The best patch is the veggie garden if I don’t say so myself. MOL

As they say sometimes you’re the seed, sometimes you’re the dirt.  Hope tomorrow is a seed kind of day.                                                                             

 

 

 

 

Shoko’s Horror Story

Kali, Kali I was taken in the little box to the vet’s this morning!  *Shoko runs into the bedroom and wakes Kali.*                                                    akacrGood grief Shoko, you scared me. Yawn!!  You went to the vets?  You?  There’s never anything wrong with you, I wonder why mom took you there.

It was horrible Kali.  They weighed me by putting me in this stupid looking basket with a paper towel in it.  Like…like I was going to go tinkles on their precious machine.  After that episode I rushed to get back in my box and managed to sit there till Dr. Kalyn came into the room.  She said I weigh about the same as last year so I’m keeping my kittenish figure.  Mom babbled away at her and then Dr. Kalyn stuck her fingers in my mouth.  Cwap, she made my sore tooth hurt.  I didn’t like it a bit but then she said to me, “My little sweetheart, I’m so sorry to have to do this to you.”  Hey, Dr. Kalyn is very nice to us.  I got the chance to get into my box so took it.  Mom and Dr. K babbled back and forth for a bit and dad stood playing his game.  I heard, “We’ll be back Monday.” and we were outta the little exam room.  The visit was $36.80 but Dr. Kalyn didn’t charge mom for the visit.  BONUS!

I was quiet all the way home and thundered outside as soon  as the door was open.  Cow Kitty was over for a visit so I sat down and told him all about it.  His tail just kept getting bigger.  I scared him.

Cow Kitty was so startled by the vet news, he dropped the moth he had in his mouth.                                                              acksEgads!  I don’t want them to drill out a tooth or something equally as bad.  Look Shoko, is your tooth sore?  Yes.  Does it hurt more when you chew down on that tooth?  YesIs it the worst pain you’ve ever felt when you bite into your favourite treats, Island Paradise.  Oh, you know it is, Kali.  My eye water’s and the pain makes me drop my treat and run…thundering down the hall.  It only makes sense then to see the dentist at the vet’s.  You don’t want to lose most of your teeth like me.  You don’t have to mouth your wet food, it’s just that your tooth is very sore so this is your way of compensating.  I know you’re right Kali but I still don’t like the idea.  C’mon Shoks we’ll go grab a nap together.  OK. but no mushy stuff.  I just want to feel your with me sis.  OK, my lil sis.                                                               aakstouch                                                                               aattouchAww…I feel more relaxed now.

Have a great Wednesday my friends.

Take a zip over to Lexi the Schnauzer and read about her latest campaign strategy meeting. I read this post after the vet visit and it cheered me right up.
