Milkbone Harvest

Remember back about 87 weeks ago when I planted those Milkbone Seeds???? Well, they finally produced a small crop. I hope they do better next year though. I think this one got eaten by a squirrel or a rabbit or a deer or a chipmunk or a bird or worms or something like that. I put it in my waterbowl and washed off any GERMS. I don't want my poopshooter to go all wild on me again. Then I ate this one too.
Mom was worried that they might not be quite ripe yet, butt I didn't care. I ate the entire crop anyway!!!

You haven't lived until you've tasted something this yummy. Fresh picked Milkbones!!!

I was gonna have mom Can some for winter... butt I just couldn't stand it. Maybe they will Re-produce and if they do.... I'll have her put some of those up for the snow season.

Of course there is the small chance that I just might be pullin' on your walkin' strings, or talkin' out my butt again. YOU be the judge.

If we can figure out how to open the pantry cupboard, we might plant one of those in our garden. On second thought, I think we'd probably eat them before we get them in the ground!

We wish to grow some milkbone too! Hiak!! ^^

Wild Dingo said...

How industrious of you Frankie! Question, are your milk bones organically farmed or did you use pesticide?

I'm just wondering what your mom does in her spare time...other than planting milk bones...hehehehe!
And of course, Frankie, we totally believes you. You always believes me, right? You can think on that one.
It is a beautiful crop and I'm so glad you thought to get piktures of it.

Mango said...

Huh? I must have some of those plants. Nommy!



Oh Frankie, you are so funny. Don't eat too many of them at once or your poop shooter might explode.

I just eat two milkbones but they came out to the box. I've never had a homegrown one before.

Have a good day.


Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Haha, what a great Milkbones crop.
It took 87 weeks from plant to pick? I love this post Frankie, you're right, you haven't lived until you've tasted something this yummy.

Hi Frankie,
What a pawsome plant! I wasn't around when you planted the seeds, so this is the furst I seens it!

We needs to get Moms to plant one in our yard ASAP....all we have in our yard is dumb stuff like roses and tomatoes! You are one lucky dog.

Sallie said...

LOL! You have the best garden ever!

houndstooth said...

*gasp* Frankie! I'm begging you! Please send me one of those seeds! That is the best crop EVER!


mayziegal said...

Why would you talks out your butt, Frankie. That would be SO weird!

No, I believes you're telling the truth, the whole truth and nuttin but the truth! And I really needs to talk to mom and dad about us planting a milkbone tree. All our trees are just useless and harbor squirrels and stuff.

You sure do have a green paw, Frankie!

I think you might be yanking our chain just a little...but I'm taking no chances. I'll do some checking next time I get out to chase my beloved stick. Then I can see if our yard has a tree like this. I'll keep my paws crossed and hope you're not pulling a haha on us.

The Teacher's Pets said...

Hi Frankie,
I am kinda young so I am learning new things everyday and I must bark that no one butt you has revealed the truth about milkbones! Thanks for telling me there are seeds inside the milkbones and if you plant them they'll grow more milkbones! Wow! My dad is working really hard on our small vegetable garden butt he hasn't mentioned that he's gonna grow any milkbones yet. Hmmmm....maybe I should have him read this story and he'll start planting some doggie treats just for me and my dog walking furrends!
My mom says this post is one of the most cleverest posts she's read in a long time so I guess that means she doesn't like her bloggie posts at odd!

Ms. ~K said...

Yeah, and we planted a $$ tree too!
Licks and sniffs,

Twix said...

WOW! Double WOW! OMD I think I might faint knowing there is a milkbone tree in your yard. I am on my don't think your girls will mind do you? I can't even begin to tell you how jelly I am about this most wonderful plant.

Lorenza said...

Sure they taste delicious!
Maybe you can sell those seeds!
Kisses and hugs
