Happy Monday in the Garden with Benji

I have four raised garden beds; three of them are filled with herbs and roses; a bit messy perhaps but their colors and fragrance bring me joy.

I’ve had trouble getting plants to grow in the fourth bed. I don’t know why.

“Benji, do you have any ideas?”

“It’s vermin, Sue. Pure and simple. But don’t worry. I’m on it!”

“Are you sure, Benji? I think you’re the problem!”

“Surely you jest, Sue! I’m trying to help. Just leave it to me.”

“Okay, Benji. I give up. It’s all yours. We’ll wait and see whether the sunflowers and dahlias rise up from the ruins.”

  1. currently, a stray kitty (who is unfortunately very pregnant) has been doing a number on my one raised bed, using it as a litter box. i have a vet appointment for her but not for more than a week, so I may have kittens too.

    • Unfortunately it happens! I filled the 3 beds full so my kitties wouldn’t have room to use it for a cat box. The other bed is empty part of the year as the plants die back each year leaving it open for cat mischief. I hope you find homes for the kittens!

  2. Benji seems to be enjoying himself! I guess you need some perennials to take up the empty spaces…

    • He certainly does have a good time! There are dahlias under
      and some others that die back over the winter so I haven’t known what to plant over them, especially since Benji is laying there all the time!

  3. Benji would never tear up a flower bed! πŸ˜‚ So cute. ❀️

  4. Seems to you may have to resign yourself to having three beds for plants and one for Benji πŸ˜†

  5. I’m sure Benji is just copying you, and thinks he is gardening! πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete.
