Last night I went out to the garden to pick a cabbage and Lucy the puggle dog decided to help.
Do puggles like cabbage? Yes, yes they do.
Not only will puggles eat cabbages, but they’ll also eat blueberries, peanut butter, carrots, mice and dried up chipmunks. They also like to dig up the remains of pet chickens and chew on their bones on the back lawn too. To say puggle puppies are adventurous eaters, would be an understatement.
Lucy is doing a pretty good job of staying out of the garden beds though, I think the threat of getting squirted with the garden hose has been a great deterrent. With the exception of the raspberries dangling from their canes, she’s becoming quite the little garden companion.
Do you see those bush beans? Well HELLO! I can’t wait to pick those suckers!
And check out this squash plant. I can’t remember if I planted a pumpkin here or an acorn squash, but it’s thriving alongside the strawberries and min that’s for sure.
And the Swiss chard along the fence… The leaves are HUGE. I’d say it’s time to pick a basket of the stuff for the chickens.
The artichokes are starting to pop up all over the place too. I’m not sure if I want to pick them or just watch them bloom. It’s a hard choice because artichoke flowers are beautiful.
And last but not least, the Roma tomatoes. We’ve harvested a few Sun Gold tomatoes so far, but I’m really, really looking forward to harvesting these beauties and turning them into sauce.
Keep Calm and Garden On… that’s what I say.
Have a great Friday,
