Odds an ends, this an that

Not too much goin on round here. The usual stuff to bark at.
Here's me on alert. I had been barkin at the lil wurker men movin the irrigation pipe outta the wheat field 'cross the road.



An fur those of yu who don't get up too early, this here thingy is called a sunrise.


Those sunrise deals happen a lot this time o' year right affer breakfast.

We've got sum grow box thingys on our patio. Earth Box is whut they're called. We don't reck-o-mend them. We had 3. Mommy gave up on one an pulled up the stuff that wuz tryin to grow in it. Here's one that should have more stuff in it but only 2 pepper plants are still hangin on. See.

Those poor lil peppers had aphids that Mommy blasted off. An sum basil an anuther pepper had to be deleted.

But here's anuther box with tomatoes. Lots of green stuff happenin in this box.



An looky whut is goin on in there!






Those are sum nice lil grape tomatoes, jus right fur a lil dog to pull off the vine an munch! But we gotta save the very first ripe ones fur Daddy. That's a house rule.

I'll leave yu with sum flower piccies. We don't got many flowers round here, fur sure not like sum o' yur pawrents show. But here's a few daylilies we got blooming now. We don't know their names.
Hope yu have a great weekend!

    WOW your tomatoes are closer to RIPE than OURS are... BUTT we HAVE had some green peppers and beans and snow peas...
    Those boxes are sort of Tricky.... gotta have the water JUST right and too much sun makes the black boxes HOT and the plants get their roots.. singed.

  3. I never see that sunrise thing either. Sunrise around here is about 5 am and we get up about 8 am on work days. Mommy likes being only 5 minutes from work so she can sleep longer. Around our place the rabbits get everything. We didn't get a single strawberry and our neighbour was complaining today that they got no beans. She said she isn't going to plant anything next year because the rabbits eat it all.

    1. Jus wait Pugs, yur squash is liable to splode here in a few weeks. Then yu'll be swimmin in 'em! Is it zucchini? Bout the only time peepoles lock their cars is "zucchini season" so's they don't get loaded up by well-meanin peepoles. Bol!

  8. Crikey Zoe ... Those pictures are great and all, especially the sun rise one but isn't it about time for another flash of the beautiful peepers. Haven't seen one of those for a while now and I'm suffering withdrawals or something. Bet Tux peed on those earth box thingies. That's why nothin's grow in'!

  10. Zoe I love your sunrise. Living where I am I don't get to see many. Lee and I love to sit out late and look at the sky but we have to look straight up because the city lights take away a lot of pretty things we might see. Now you make sure that those workers put in a full day. Love your lilies.
    Thanks for being a friend
