So kitties, last Thursday I promised some pictures of our "gardening efforts".
This first picture is what we WISH we could grow: veggies and fruit the humans got at the Farmer's Market. Yummy fresh stuff (for THEM!).
This is the Garden area of pots on our deck. Tomatoes on the right, pepper plant in the middle and herbs on the left.
A closeup of a developing tomato - Dad says this plant is a "Better Boy" plant. I thought I, Simba, was the Better Boy.
This plant is called Early Girl. Like Audrey who wakes everybody up very early.
Here are the herbs: basil and oregano on the left, mint and rosemary behind, parsley in front. Dad grows the parsley for the butterflies - he saw a mama butterfly trying to lay eggs there yesterday so maybe we will see caterpillars soon.
Our Bee Balm plant is meant to attract hummingbirds but we still have not seen any. One of Dad's freinds said he saw the first one in their garden a few days ago and they usually have more. Something funny going on with the hummers this year it seems.
Audrey wanted to go out with Mom while she took the pictures. The painter's tape on the door is because of painting going on outside this week.
