A Gray Thumb

You won't believe what I grew this year.  I wasn't sure, when I got the cat seeds, that they would take.  I have heard that they can be very tricky to grow.  Particular about the amount of sun and water.  Finicky with weeds, and not thriving when planted near onions or garlic.

He was a bit of a late bloomer.  I decided to go with container gardening.  I used the tabby variety seeds.  I didn't use any compost, but I did fertilize with tuna and Meow Mix.


Can you believe it?  He turned out gorgeous, don't you think?  Next summer I'm hoping to try some other varieties.  My porch will be quite the showcase! 

Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving with good food and loving family and friends.

Cute!!! I hope you have a great Thanksgiving, Lisa, with your family and furry friends.

I'll try to come around more often. I really do enjoy your posts, and humor :)

FYI: I became so frustrated with some issues between the blogging platforms that I have imported all my posts from the new blog back to the old one. No more WP :(

BWAH HAHAHAHAHAAA
Can you please save seeds this year and send me some?

Ginny said...

Well, now I KNOW you can grow anything!! Perhaps later you can add some catnip to the fertilizer, that might cause a big growth spurt. I guess you will be very busy preparing for Thanksgiving, we wish you a wonderful and warm one! Plenty of snow here and bad roads, I hope you don't have to travel.

I want some of those seeds!! He is adorable. He favors Chase Bird, don't you think?

I hope you and your four guys have a fun and safe holiday! We're supposed to eat at the Peaks of Otter, but the weather may change that.
