It’s taken a while but we got there…
Cat balcony open for business!
-All dusted and all safe
-Just need a cat….But where is she?… Snoozing on the sofa
I then realised we are basically living in a cat prison! From what we know she has always been a house cat, so it will be interesting to see what she makes of it.
So I feel a bit rotten that our cat doesn’t have a garden. She is a adopted indoor cat but she likes a good sniff and sit in the sun like most fur faces.
I have a big net to install and I plan to make a wooden frame so she is 100% safe.
I have done a bit of research and my planting plan is to begin by sourcing below…
1. Cat Grass
This also keeps mosquitoes away… For some reason we get a lot at the allotment in the evening…. Might have to try this!
7. Cat thyme
8. Spider plants apparently
I am sitting waiting for my delayed train into work… So musing about gardening is helping to soften my grump and kill some time. Although touch screen gloves would be an idea in the cold!! BRRR!
And I found this image. Is so beautiful!!! I like to think this is how flossie will feel on our balcony! (A bit…he he! 🐱) cat dreams!
So all the plants are still with us just about:
Sunflowers only one left now and I think he is on his way out from wind damage…
Tomatoes; all happy growing away. Due a pot up
Chard-doing really strong but small
Spring onions and spinach; looking a bit sad, will work on these!
Potato is growing too well!
All other plants are bumbling along; the twisted willow even has leaves!
All in all doing well, but this weekend will be a re-pot for many.
Last night I noticed the spinach is just coming through. I also noticed that not only do we get a squirrel visitor; but today we also had a little raven sitting on the hanging baskets. For a few weeks I put a feeder out; But discovered the bird seed went all over! Bit worried he might turn veggie and eat my baby toms!
I also saw.some bright lights chard; its amazing, looks like northern lights but in veg form!
So the seed hit list is:
Mixed salad leaves
Chard (white silver 2)
