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. 🙂

I am afraid that our neighborhood cats see our beds as litter boxes! They need lessons.
Aw yes. I admit I’ve had that problem in my garden beds.. So I’ve learned to work around it by leaving no soil exposed where edibles are planted and/ or planting edibles in barrels.
That is wise. I was supposing your cats were more selective!
No, I’m afraid not. You build a garden bed and they say, ‘thanks for the new cat box! And outside too, much better than the tiny one inside!’ 😉
Sounds just like my neighbor’s cats.
Such a cuuute post!! I loved it!
Aw thanks so much!
Talk about a “purr-fect” partner!
Yes indeed!! 😻😻
You did well to capture Benji doing all that stuff. It worked so well as a montage. 🙂
Best wishes, pete.
Thanks so much Pete. 😊😻
Hey Benji! Thanks for the gardening tutorial. You sure know how to do it! Since we aren’t allowed outside, we’ll have to ask Mom to see if catmint will grow indoors!

You’re welcome! I hope you can grow the catmint inside! It tastes good and makes you feel good too!! 🙂 🙂
We’ll have to give it a try!
Either catmint or catnip would be great if they’d grow inside for you! Although it might not last long!
I am impressed. You are a great worker.
Thank you! I do what I can! Especially for the catmint!
Thank you! 🙂
Wonderful cat. 😺
Thank you! I think so too! 🙂 🙂
Hi Benji! You have a nice garden!
Hi back! Thanks so much! 😻😻
Your cat is so cute!
Thanks so much! 😻
