And finally this week...

We've been getting our veg seeds planted and last week the furst wave was set.

So what's growing?

What's Growing ©BionicBasil® The Pet Parade 344
Catnip of course! MOL

Plus peas, broccoli, beans, onions, radish, wild garlic, tomatoes, peppers, cauliflower and carrots etc...  oh and just fur the fun of it, we planted some lemon seeds too to see if we can grow a tree! MOL

We also planted some ornamental grasses, as we really like those but don't want to pay £14.99 per plant as we need quite a few, so we're going to see if we can grow a few.

As mew can see we use small pots and put about 5 seeds per pot.  Then we place them on a bright windowsill and cover with clingfilm, we check them every couple of days to make sure they haven't dried out and use a spray bottle to gently dampen the compost if they have. We'll keep mew updated on germination as effurything we planted has different rates of growth.  Some of the grasses take up to 40 days.

We've also got some large pots outside and we'll be sowing carrots, leeks, and some other stuff this week.  We use potato bags fur our spuds and the furst one of those has just been planted too.

The P.A. likes container planting as she can move things about the garden to see where they grow best and it helps in snail and slug evasion too.

Are mew growing anything this year?

Amber will be here on Friday with another specially paw-picked book just fur all mew book lovers, so do stop by the library and say hello.  We'll also be purrticipating in 15 & Meowing's Friendly Fill-ins as we're trying to get a little more active again as the P.A continues to get better.

Until then...

Bestest purrs

  1. Hope you all enjoyed St. Patrick's Day!
    We don't have any vegetables to grow this year, but are planning to add to our native plant gardens, in an effort to attract native bees, birds, butterflies, etc.
    We also hope that The PO'M ignores any of the extra critters that we are inviting into the yard...

  2. Catnip. You can't have to much catnip.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

  5. We hope you had a great St. Patrick's Day. We know that a lot of catnip will be planted for you. We usually do tomatoes, cucumbers, and eggplant. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful rest of your day.

  6. I am all behind this year and usually have my tomato seeds in by the beginning of February. I have a raised strawberry bed too which usually gives us a huge crop. I need to go out and remove the oldest plants and replant the runners.

  7. You are lucky kitties. Thanks for hosting the parade. XO

  8. Wow! Your gardening endeavors are very large...ours are not nearly as elaborate! MOL! Though we do use pots on the patio and a couple of large elevated planter boxes. Not sure if we'll grow any big veggies this year, maybe we;ll stick with some simple flowers and nip...and we do have some herbs that are perennial or self seeding. Parsley is a biannual, but it keeps coming back!

    Nice slide show!

  9. Catnip is a comin' to the HQ! :)

    we hope you had a great St. Patrick's Day, sweet pals!

  10. You cats are all so lucky. We don't have catnip here. We can't find it anywhere....
    Mom said to tell you to we linked up with Pet Parade

  11. We aren't growing any vegetables yet but I hope to start some flowers with my grandchildren. I think they will love watching them grow.
