Friendly Fill-Ins From Us

Mom and I will do this Fill In for Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader.  This is also a blog hop so go to McGuffy’s Reader and see what your friends have to say.

KALI…..ORANGE
MOM…RED VIOLET

 

. My favorite cereal is…..LUCKY CHARMS.  The different colors make me feel happy and they taste fantabulous.                                                 

2. My prom….. WAS NOT MEMORABLE AND NOT WORTH DISCUSSING SO WE WON’T.  WELL, TRUTH TIME I NEVER WENT TO A PROM.

3. The …..MAJOR….. thing about …..OREGANO…..  IS TO REALIZE THAT THE TASTIER AND MILDER LEAVES ARE THE YOUNG WEE ONES.  THE OLDER ONES ARE TOO STRONG FOR US KITTIES WITH SENSITIVE PALATES.  SO POKE ABOUT IN THE REGANO AND FIND THE SMALLEST LEAVES AND CHOW DOWN.                                                                 

 

4. I cannot help….. MYSELF,….. but …..THE MOMENT I HEAR BUDDY BUDD’S VOICE THE FUR ON THE BACK OF MY NECK STANDS UP.

Have a great Friday and remember Saturday is around the corner so get ready to pawta with us.
                                                                            

Here a Seed…There a Seed

We are starting our seeds…or some of them today.  The ones that need to be transplants before we put them outside, are slowly being planted in small containers.  We use fruit cups or tiny yogurt containers and punch holes in the bottom.  We use starter mix as this form of medium as it is not as dense as potting soil.  If the seeds sit for a long time in wet soil they will rot.                                                                                   This size is ideal for the wee seeds.                                                           The three type of seeds we are concerned with today are Chervil, Hamburg Parsley and Poached Egg Plants.  These seeds were sent to us from the Flowery Prose blog.  Cheryl lives in Alberta so our climates are similar.

Sunflower…does not take long to start sprouting and grows huge quickly so we will leave it till the last.

Chervil or Anthriscus cerefolium is similar to parsley. The leaves have a mild aniseed taste. Chervil has medicinal and culinary uses.  In French cuisine, it is one of the four herbs, along with chives, tarragon, and parsley, which make up the delicate bouquet “fines herbes”.                                                                Hamburg Parsley or Petroselinum crispum.  Germination may take up to three weeks.  Hamburg parsley is grown for its parsnip like root but the leaves can be used as well because they taste like parsley.  It takes 3 to 4 months for Hamburg Parsley to mature.                                                                 

Poached Egg Plant:  or Limnanthes douglasii   The poached egg plant is an annual that is  easy to grow and is recommended for children to grow as they are getting used to the thrill of gardening.. The plant usually bears white flowers with yellow centers, hence the name “poached egg plant”,                                                                        

We have started the transplants for this summer….at least some of them.  We plant the transplants outside in the first or second week of June when any chance of night frost has passed.                                                                     You know I could jump in the tray and play scatter the dirt. MOL  Oh My…did I say that out loud?  I don’t know what came over me.  I even look guilty.

Have  a spring like day.  May the clouds pee all over you! MOL.  Good grief, what makes me say these things?                                                                    

 

 

 

Happenings on Tuesday

 

Did you say dad made this, mom?  He did a pretty good job.  I like it.  There’s a comfy bed in there too.

Let’s head out for a walk mom.  Kali, how bout you?  The backyard is looking pretty good.  Perhaps a wee jaunt along the Lane is just what I need.

   Looks like Cow-Kitty’s coming too.

Remember the neglected house?

The city crew came by yesterday and cut back the grass and up and coming new trees. They also stripped the apple tree as it was full of apples and an attraction for bears getting ready to hibernate. Mom say’s the owner will be paying a hefty sum for the city maintenance crew to clear the property.

The crew picked a bowl of organic apples and gave them to us.  Of course all the apples are organic as they’re just plain neglected.

 These are the sweetest and most vermin free apples mom’s tasted in quite awhile.

Cow-Kitty is playing with me in the dead leaves.

Time to take our apples and go home.
