Checking In!

BHU:  Hai, it's me again!  Didja miss me?  Purrobly not, right?  Well, anyhoo, nothing much has been going on around here.  It's been quiet, but the weather has been "wonderful" [quoting mai mom] so the 'rents have been spending lots of time outsides!  I keep asking what is the condition of my catnip plant, but I get no answers. 

PATTY:  Well, we didn't want to disappoint you, but the fact of the matter is that every kitty in the 'hood has been butting head into the 'nip and it is beaten down and lookin' sad!  Sorry dude!  Other than that, the garden is doing good thanks to the fabulous compost I make!  And I have been busy saving seeds, too . . . chard, snow peas, mustard and tomatoes, so far.  Beans are growing, turnips need to be dug up, potatoes are almost ready and I still haven't figured out what to do with the Lemon Grass, but HEY, it's lookin' good!

Top:  Glorious sunflowers and the Mimosa in the background.  Bottom:  Madonna Lilies, Genovese basil and the mystery vine that grows in the compost bin every year.  I think it's some kind of squash.  The flowers are pretty.
Hope your summer is going well!  We are only two weeks away from the start of school here, bringing 30,000 more teen pods to the area.  Anybody else live in a university town?  If so, you know our pain.

Hi Bhu ~ you are just as handsome and loveable as ever! (and yes, we missed you, dear boy ...)
Your mom's garden is glorious!

I absolutely DID miss you. Please don't stay away so long again. xxxoo Yours and your mom's garden is wonderful. MY mommy always wished she could grow some sunflowers like that but the seeds are all for small ones. :-(

Love seeing you again Bhu. xox

Hi Bhu !
Sounds like you had as lovely summer as us :)
We do have a university in town , but since we live on the countryside we don't get bothered.
Sorry to hear about your catnip :(
But I guess your neighbor cats are happy :)

No but I went to college (Kent State) so yep, I can relate! Happy Tuesday!

What a gorgeous garden, and if that is indeed basil, I hope there is fine pesto in the near future (for the "Mommy" and "Sab" not kitties). Nice to be kept abreast, Bhu, thanks. And remember, only you can say no (to the other cats re your catnip).
