Gardening is great! It seems to always be a lot of work getting the yard ready for Summer, but for those of us who enjoy it, it’s not work at all, but pure joy! For example, for the first time ever, Mommy finally got two baby cherry tomato plants that Daddy picked out for her, and it was her first time ever that she tried “container gardening”, and today will be the first time that we can pick our first two cherry tomatos! Mommy has been babying her tomato plants and actually brings them in every night so the deer won’t eat them. So, all of her hard work is finally paying off with her first two tomatoes!
Even Daddy got into the fun and planted some pumpkin seeds! He started his seeds back in May, but with all the rain we got, it actually killed out the seeds, so he planted yet another whole pack of seeds and had success. Now, if we could only figure out how to keep the little rodents away from eating the little pumpkin plants that are sprouting, that would be awesome! Since Daddy and Mommy love Halloween, they decided that they would try some pumpkin seeds to see if they could grow their own pumpkins to carve on Halloween! We’ll have to keep you informed on how that goes! Daddy’s prize pumpkin (the largest one) actually has some huge blooms on it, so we think that we’ll have a chance with this one!
Mommy is still cutting and sanding tombstones! She has about 10 cut & sanded so far, and they are looking great! Daddy & Mommy went to Pat Catans and purchased some 6″ wood letters R.I.P. to add to the tombstones for some flair. If anyone has any suggestions on what she can add to the tombstones or any great websites to share, let her know. How do you think she is doing so far? By the time Halloween rolls around (which is only 115 days away) she’ll have tons of new tombstones for the front yard!
Well, the weekend is upon us and I can’t wait to see what I’ll get into – – probably another trip to Disneyland (aka PetSmart) and I’ll have to start checking out the toys they have so I can tell Santa what I want for Christmas!
Woof at you later…Nikita
