Well it’s that time of year again so Sue has asked me to lead you through the basic steps of spring gardening! If you’re lucky like me your humans – Bob in this case – will have already installed garden beds in a sunny place.
Your first job is to prepare the soil. Tools help for this purpose.
Next you plant your seeds – or itty bitty plants called ‘starts.’ Or you may even move existing plants around and around like Sue does every year.
The next step is critical and definitely requires a cat like me. You must rid your garden beds of pests lest they sneak in underneath and eat your crop before you do!
After your beds have been planted and all unwanted pests have been removed, you watch and wait,
through sunshine and rain
until you finally get to enjoy the fruit of your labor
and it is catmint!
A work cat, after all, is worthy of his wages. 🙂
