It’s planting time this year! We didn’t really feel like growing a garden last year, because planting season was around the time Tabs passed, but we’ve always enjoyed building our little deck gardens, and Tabs did too. He had quite a green thumb.
He just loved hanging out around the garden and the world of plants we built every year on the deck. It’s a small area back there, but we’ve managed to do a lot with it.
There was catnip galore, peppers, a cat grass nibbling and napping area, a zinnia snack bar, a parsley appetizer area, and a gerbera daisy all-you-can-eat buffet.
We didn’t feel quite as ambitious this year, partly because it was more difficult to procure all the plants, and also because Rosie didn’t take charge of the landscape architecture like Tabs did, but we did manage to plant some tomatoes, yellow squash, basil, lettuce, catnip, zinnia, gerberas and a small patch of cat grass.
I think Tabs would be proud. 😊 These pics are from past years, but I’ll post some pics of this year’s garden soon.
Rosie put her math skills to work designing a new irrigation system for us. Now we have automatic drip watering that works on a timer, and Rosie says it’ll really improve our catnip yields. 😹
