Garden is IN

These are some... SOME of my tomato plants... waiting to get put in their holes.. I like to help with the hole digging, as I am sure you can imagine. BUTT.. Once the Epsome Salts gets put in... I have to stay AWAY from the holes... or else... my poop shooter might go crazy.. like my SockMonkey has happening. I (Frankie Furter) do NOT want that to happen.
My dad is all about rows being PERFECT and stuffs so he puts up STRINGS. I don't pay much attention to them though. I think a FREE FORM garden looks best.

BaaaaaWaaaaah check it out... my DAD has to have a Tool thingy to dig a good hole. I have tried and tried to teach him to use his paws... butt he just can't get the hang of it. I'm thinkin he must get those stupid THUMBS in the way or somethingy like that.

THESE are my Green Peppers!! I LOVE THOSE thingys. I pick my very own and eat all I want... FRESH.

Now these funny lookin SHORT stakes (not steaks) are to mark the place where my green beans and CORN on the COBS will come up. Plus do you see the big pole thingy on the left... that is where my RED RASPBERRIES and Mom's grapes grow. They aren't really in my GARDEN spot. My mom and I go out everyday and just stand and pick and eat the red raspberries. BUTT I NEVER EVER EAT THE GRAPES... NOT good fur dawgs. Butt my mom makes Jelly and juice from those.

This is my dad.... with more strings... putting in some MORE of my green beans. I LOVE those thingys too. I rip them RIGHT OFF the bushes and eat 'em up like a PIG. Sooooo we have to plant LOTS of them. hehehe

My mom planted the parsley... I only helped her dig ONE hole... beclaws we only have 9 of those plants... and she could handle that by herself... once I got her started. THEN she planted the sugar snap peas.... butt not in perfect rows like dad does.. hehehe... She and I are MUCH more CREATIVE than HE is. BaaaaWaaaah.

PeeS... the funny lookin patches are SUNSHINE on the ground... It was comin through one of my maple trees. I like to work in the COOL Shady pawt of the garden on HOT summer days.
I didn't show you any pictures of me Planting my Milkbone seeds... butt I did that While Dad was running the Rototiller and mom was planting a few Snappy Dragons in her flower gardens. I think that my Seeds have already started to Germinate... I'll prolly have a HOOOOOGE crop this year.

Green beans off the vine are the best. It looks like dad is making you a regular feast right at Frankie level.

That do be most furry impressive Frankie. I love how you try to gib you hoomans guydance but sometimes they think they knows better. Just keep my mom away from your pawsome garden coz she do has a black thumb wot majorly gets in the way of her planting stuffs, snd she would make all your plants DED. Yup, boom, just like that! Has you tried dancing around with a plant in your mouf, roots flapping in the breeze? Fun times I tell you!

Wow Frankie when you do a garden you really DO a GARDEN! Bet your neighbors can hardly wait for harvest time ;) YUM!

Wow, your garden is huge - no wonder Mom can do so much canning. We hope the garden flourishes, especially the milkbone plants. We might have to try growing some too - the Momster is too stingy with her offerings.

Don't worry about us going nekkid, Frankie. We have lots and lots and lots of fur. The Momster could brush all day and night and there still would be more:)

Happy Sunday.

Wyatt said...

You are on your way Frankie! I might have to come to your house to garden, cuz it is so cold and wet here, we still can't rototil the soil. We have peas, radishes and lettuce popping up, but that is it. I dug up mom's sweet pea flower seeds and she yelled at me :(


K9friend said...

Growing your own yummies rocks! Your gardening advice is very useful, too!


Samantha said...

What a huge garden you have - you are going to be eating veggies all summer long and into winter heheh!!! Especially love your description of the all-impt. planting of the milkbone - keep us updated on those!!!
Hugs xoxoxo

That is going to be one huge garden! Our Mom wants a garden... but she says she doesn't like to play in the dirt, so we shall see. hahaha! (And we like to dig up anything she plants and drag it through the yard.)

Oh, Mom is green with the jellyness over your garden! She had hopes of getting ours planted this weekend, but it's been solid rain here! We may have to drive back to Ohio just for a few tomatoes!


Stella said...

Furry, furry nice garden, Mr. Mayor!

I think its especially good you continue to try to get your Dad to use his paws to dig. He may be a little slow but it might just come to him one of these days!

I do have to say, I like your Dads string rows, they look so neat and much easier to weed!


Mack said...

I foresee some good eatin' in your future Frankie!
I know you are a big help to your pawrents!

road-dog-tales said...

Sagira said...

Don't they know the food taste better when YOU dig the hole? Geesh!

That is a really big garden. :)

sprinkles said...

How considerate you are to help your mom and dad plant the seeds by digging the holes.

One of my neighbors has a really big garden in her yard. She expands it every year. Pretty soon, the whole yard will be nothing but a garden.

scotsmad said...

We're so happy it has dried out so you can get your plants in. We agree with you, humans seem incapable of digging a proper hole with their paws.

Are the Charcoals still around, you'd better keep them out of your garden.

the booker man said...


greetings! i thoroughly enjoy a robust garden, and if i do say so myself, yours promises to be quite spectacular! i am admittedly envious of the sheer amount of space with which you have to work. please do keep me in mind should the need arise for additional assistance with your garden. i would be most honored to come to your aid!


Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Your humans are sure hard workers, Frankie? How did you train them so well. Mine - not so much.

Amber DaWeenie said...

You gots a huge garden! I bets your pawrents never has to goes to da grocery store. I only has 2 tomato plants and dey are in a pot on da pool deck so da bugs can't get to dem. Dey are already all full of tomatoes!


Frank and green beans....
Your pops was working hard. I hope he has green jeans! yuck yuck!

PS- when's the lily pad pond going in... that's where my fav green things grow. I can't wait to see your new frogballs.

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Your parents are WAY ahead of my Mom. She's talking about putting in a lawn this year, but so far, she's only got about half the backyard raked, and she hasn't even bought the grass seed yet. We'll be lucky if she gets the grass seed down before it starts snowing again! ;-)

Hi Frankie
We are very impressed with you and your humans' gardening efforts. And to think that Gail uses me as an excuse for being such a useless gardener...
Toodle pip!
