Livin off the Fat of the Land...

Hey everybody! Look what I'm helping my mom/gardener with...her herb garden! We are gonna start living off the fat of the land!
Here I am making sure the hole she dug is big enough & deep enough to accommodate the little herbs she's gonna stick in there...
Ok...all good...get to work!
Mmmm...That basil smelly yummy...Can I use some on my dinner tonight?

The next planter is full of hot peppers for my Daddy & the 3rd is full of tomatos! The planter boxes are self watering...so hopefully they can survive on their own...no need for my mom/secretary to kill them...
I'll be bringing you updates on the garden & any little furry friends that decide that its their own neighborhood cafe...Honestly, I was hoping for a hamburger & steak garden...anybody have a meatables plant?
Love & Licks,

Good thing that your mom doesn't need you to help with the watering. We just seem to kill the things that we water.

Hey Randi girl!

My advice is to stay away from the parsley because it makes your breath smell good!

Your mom and dad are just like ours. Dad has onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, peas and brussel sprouts. Dad doesn't like those but Mom does..

hi Randi, that looks like a great garden. maybe you can help to water it, if it gets a little dry. please let us know if you can find a hamburger garden. we want one of those too.


Mango said...

You are so lucky to be able to help with the gardening. We have fences around our garden for some reason. Watch out for the hot peppers.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Randi!
You are a great helper!
Sure is nice to grow your own veggies!
Kisses and hugs

Keep your eyes on the tomatoes. Those are the best.

HI Randi!

Oooh, looks like a lovely garden. Hey, when you find a steak and chicken garden let us know, would ya?

Wags and woofs,

Your gardens are so neat and pretty, Randi! Mom grows basil too and we see parsley and sage and rosemary in there too! The herbs smell so good!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mango said...

Sigh, Randi, if only you knew. The shameless little brat is constantly flashing everybody. Kids.

Thanks for sponsoring him. He gets all woozy just seeing your name on the email.

Randi! I love gardening. I especially like the digging part and the destroying the pots that the bedding out plants come in. I'm intrigued by the hamburger garden. If you get her to plant one, let me know.

Did you hear? I'm going to meet Wally for real!!!! Well, I'm for sure going to meet Oscar Bean Super Teen at least. I hope I don't try to bite him or something, but I like young boys. Some would even call me a cougar. And to all of them, I say PURRRRRRRRRRR!

omdog self watering is the key! Mom has an aerogarden and it does that, it thrives. Everything else Mom kills!

Keep an eye out for catnip! Eat that and you'll have an identity crisis. :p

Last year we planted beefsteak tomatoes. I was VERY disappointed. Though I do love the maters.

That looks a fine garden. I recommend fruitables as they are very edible and you can wander round helping yourself.
