Epic Wednesday Greetings Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

How's your week going? 

Last week we mentioned we may plant some seeds if it got a bit warmer, and it has remained relatively nice, so yesterday we got the sweet peas in a little pot of water to enliven them before sowing them, and we also sorted out the peppers too. In previous years, we have also sowed the pepper seeds too late, as apparently they need five months to crop, so we're well ahead of the game this year.

And we don't know about mew, but there are no tomatoes in the shops right now, so we may even start some of those early next month. We grow them every year, and this year we've got a new spot to try when it's warm enough outside to grow them on, so we'll let mew know how that's going later in the season.

This year the beans are going back in the raised beds in the courtyard, as it gets really hot there, and we may try the courgettes there too.

Are mew growing anything this year?

First up in the news 

Smooch Ambushing Pandora on the Millwheel

Pandora was minding her own business as Smooch - see the action shot above - jumped up to ambush her. She wasn't bothered and promptly vacated the millwheel at top speed, and if mew're wonder how fast Pandora is, check out her video here on TikTok.

We don't know what Parsley's boggle was here! 

The P.A. had been cleaning in the fitness room, and he wandered in, sat down and gave her the stink eye, purrhaps it was because he thought she should be working out instead of tidying up! MOL

  1. Pandora, watch out! Your mischievous brother is coming up on the mill wheel!

    EPIC stink eye, Parsley!

    So handsome, as always, Melvyn.


  2. We are looking forward to when we can plant our seeds

  3. Awww, you're all so precious. I love the stink eye the best. Cats can do the best stink eyes.

    I know I'll get next weeks bandana right. Number four it is.

    Have a fabulous day and rest of the week. Scritches all around and a big hug to mom. ♥

  4. Pandora has great speed! I planted my tomato seeds on Monday and they are now in the kitchen window.

  5. We hope your seeds will sprout and grow well!

    Lots of fun things in this post!

  6. Cool 😎 pictures all, but that stinkeye was uh, highly effective. We won't get to plant anything this year but with a few warmer days here, everyone is talking about it!

  7. Those are all really fun photos, especially that stink eye! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  8. Looking good Melvyn. You all look great. My hubby already started some cherry tomatoes that he grows indoors. XO

  9. Wowzers you guys are busy! I love all the bandanas and could not pick just one! Keep up the great work guys! Purrs Marvelous Marv

  10. Now, those are the bandana choices per week I would have and likely did choose. That stink eye was EPIC! EPIC I say! I wish I could give as good a one. Mine are usually pseudo "imperial". Try as I may.

  11. My black thumb salutes you, i will be planting nothing. After all, plants commit suicide when they know i will own them.

    It's always a joy to visit here and thank you for joining Feline Friday!
