hey, it's me, biggles. mommy's got her hands full gardening, dehydrating, tutoring, baby- and puppy-sitting, so i thought i'd give her a break and fill in like hayden sometimes does for her mommy. yes, i know i'm a cat and hayden is a human, but i pay very close attention to what goes on around here, especially in the garden.=)
daddy built 2 new boxes this year, so now we have 3. he also made another trellis so we can grow cantaloupe and more cucumbers.
it may not look like it, but along with our flowers, there's lots of watering to be done. mommy doesn't like to use the hose, as our city water is full of chemicals, so we got a rain barrel for just 20 bucks on craig's list. now we're just waiting for some rain!
take a peek at what's growing!

and arugula flowers
onto other happenings, we puppy-sat my aunt krista's new puggle, mr. bear. he may stay with us one day a week when his mommy goes to work and school.
i had to swat and hiss at him already. mommy said that wasn't nice of me and that he's just 8 weeks old and doesn't know any better and blah blah blah. i was just teaching him a valuable lesson - never run up to strange animals!
mommy's hoping we warm up to each other. we'll see.
i guess he's kind of cute... when he's sleeping!
lastly, did you hear the nice things heidi had to say about mommy and her blog over at hihorosie's place? she was delighted! heidi is a real sweetie. i hear a lot about her, her hubby sam, their adorable baby ys2, and how many awesome people live in seattle. mommy wishes they were our neighbors, too!=)
not only does heidi have a fun and informative blog, she hosts lots of great giveaways, like free organic wheatgrass powder and a $100 gift certificate to csn stores.
speaking of giveaways, bitt (another sweet seattlelite) is giving away a signed copy of a jennifer cornbleet recipe book plus an adorable apron (edit: deadline is june 12th). does anyone know of some cat treat giveaways?=)
ok, i think that's about it! there's a back-up of food pics, but i'll leave that up to mommy.
