Thursday Garden Stroll

Hello friends! Welcome to the Thursday Garden Stroll. It seems as though fat boy Busby has fallen asleep (on MY pillow) so I am going to take you strolling today. Are you ready?

Spring is definitely here and we are excited about this year's garden. These are Baby Butter Head lettuce. (lettuces?) They have grown quite a bit since we planted their tiny seeds. 

Here are our Cupid Sweet Peas. They are perfect for containers and window boxes because they have little vines that only grow to be about 8-10 inches long. We have never grown these before, so we can't wait to see their blooms. 

These are Chard seedlings. Check out the drip irrigation that our Moms installed! It will save water and make the plants grow too.

Here is our Portuguese Red Kale. It's pretty and it's good to eat.

I saved the BEST for last! Here is our Catnip plant! It lives in a hanging pot because there are some very nosey ROAMING feline gardeners in our neighborhood. After spending a very cold and wet Winter outdoors, our Catnip is making a big comeback. 

Hope you enjoyed the garden stroll today! Don't forget to visit all the other Feline Gardeners. Just follow the links at the bottom of our friend Jonesie's blog. There were some NEW Feline Gardeners last week. It's never too late to join and you don't need to have a big yard (or even a yard at all) to garden. 

Have a great Thursday friends! xoxo, Raymond (and sleepy Busby)
