Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to the garden this week. It has been hotter with less rain so the grass is getting crunchy. Mum says that is OK, then she doesn't have to use the grass eater as often.

A few pics from the community garden. Eggy plants are looking good as are the purple peppers!
 Mum says they are just about the size that she would want to eat. Big enuf to get a good meal and not waste anything.
 Plus the woodchuck has been around and made a huge hole! They need to get a trap but need a really big one. Marked so no one steps in here and breaks their ankle!
 When mum got home from the garden she then took a walk down the trail. This is going away from our house and just about to her turn around spot to come home.
 Lots of purrty wild flowers and such. These are teasels and they grow wild. Mum thinks they are unique looking and the bumbly bees were liking the a lot.
All from the garden this week. See you soon.


  1. Those eggy plants look fabulous.

  2. Eggplant, grilled, is simply YUMMY! The teasels are beautiful, and it's good that the bumbles like them too. There is a woodchuck in our neighborhood, but there is no location in our yard for it to make a burrow, so he/she just runs through.

  3. Thanks for the share. We love to eat fried eggplant. It's really delicious. That woodchuck sure made a big hole. Is he/she trying to fit a whole eggplant down there. lol. Your mom really has a beautiful trail surrounded by really gorgeous trees to walk on. Hope the weather gets cooler for you soon. Have a wonderful day.

  4. I love eggplants, or aubergines as we call them. I like to chop them in bite sized chunks with courgettes (zucchini) sweet peppers, garlic cloves and mushrooms, marinate them in olive oil then bake in the oven. Yummy!

  5. Mom likes eggplant a lot! She's never seen a purple pepper, though. We enjoyed the walk photo--and those teasels--we've never seen those either!

  6. Woodchucks usually have TWO holes to their burrows, so they have a back door to escape out of, so your Mom needs to scout around and see where his other hole is.
    Hopefully it's on the neighbor's property !


Don't be shy, we loves to hear your meows and mews.
