Back HOME...









The furst thingy that I did after I returned home (Yesterday) from Sarge's house... was to run out and check on my MOST IMPAWTANT crop of ALL... My Milkbone Crop. I am pleased to report that they are Almost mature enought to PICK... and Can and EAT. I am thinkin that I will have a MUCH larger crop than last year. Prolly due to all the Rain and HOT DAYS. They love Heat and certainly need lots of rain.

Now THIS is gonna be a BUMPER Crop... fur sure!!!

I got the seeds from the BURP EEEEEEE Company... in case You are already thinkin (like I am) of Next Spring Plantings.

Are you going to make jam and pickles this year? That way you can enjoy your crop all year round.

That is quite a crop, Frankie! Do you think you could grow a Temptation tree?

Princess Jasmine said...

Wow, I think mummy needs to get some of those for kitties. No good her growing some for herself cause she'd only want one type and the chocolate would melt in the sun! :)xx

Frankie,
After our hike last weekend mom stopped at a howse where the peeples had a table in their front yard and a sign saying they be selling tomaters from their garden and mom gibbed them green papers fur tomaters (BLECH!). (The point here do be that peeples will gib green papers fur anything.) So I be thinking - you could put a table and sign on your street and sell some of your Milk Bone crop and make lots of green papers!

Before I was born, my hoomin had a load of children (all growed up now). Anyways, she had a chewing gum plant in the garden and every now and then the kids would find sticks of gum under and among the plant.

Now you got a bone tree!

How can we get one?

Happy waggles
