Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

Garden Patrol

George, the big orange cat who signed on with us last year, patrols the yard. Every so often, he checks the garden that grows around the gazebo. Let's follow him on yesterday's patrol:

The snapdragons seem to be doing well. And the rocks look OK.

Behind the gazebo is the vegetable garden. The zucchini plants are really growing!

But these peppers could be doing better.

These tomato plants are looking good. 

But the butternut squash plants are kind of small.

The peppers on this end aren't too bad.

And the heirloom tomato plants look great.

Some kind of pink bush is blooming.

And that's how the garden grows.

How do you get by without fencing in your garden? If I didn't have mine fenced in there would be nothing left.

George patrols frequently, so small critters are discouraged. Plus the deer have enough to eat elsewhere.
