The Garden

Happy Monday and Happy August! Abbey, Connor, and Natasha here!



We wanted to show you what we’ve been looking at all summer.



It's in our backyard.






It’s our garden. Dad built the raised bed two years ago and enclosed it so the deer wouldn’t eat it all. (We hope the deer aren’t mad at us. We still have lots of stuff in the yard for them to eat, and they seem happy with it.)

The garden went wild this summer. We had a lot of rain early on and then heat and humidity. And we planted late. The result: the lettuce didn’t do well. But the tomato plants are taller than any Mama and Dad have seen. The cucumbers are overflowing too. 

We’re told that the tomatoes and cucumbers taste very good. We wouldn’t know because we’re not allowed to eat any. And apparently nothing tasty to kitties was planted, DAD. 

Maybe next year. Meanwhile, we’ll just see if these plants can get any bigger.

  3. I've heard that all the neighborhood cats will converge on your catnip, should you plant any! Seems like all the neighborhood cats are in my yard anyhoo...perhaps we'll plant catnip next year.

  5. That was a good idea to stop the deer eating everything. My dad built one for my mum and she grew strawberries in it this year.

  8. At first we thought maybe it was a play area for you guys. But a garden is pretty cool too. The deer and rabbits eat all of our plants too.
