Cat balcony open for business!

Posted on Updated on

It’s taken a while but we got there…

The cat friendly balcony

Cat balcony open for business!

-Safety net
-Cat plants
-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


2. Lemongrass


This also keeps mosquitoes away… For some reason we get a lot at the allotment in the evening…. Might have to try this!
3. Catnip
4. Catmint


5. Mint
6. Valerian


7. Cat thyme
8. Spider plants apparently
9. Honeysuckle


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!

Day off= my idea of a holiday at the plot!

I have a few days off work this week. So it’s a great excuse to get to my beloved plot!

Sweet peas are in 🙂

Sweet peas. Soaked and sown

Last year I grew them in side, this year I am being tough! 💪 starting them off in the green house (no fancy heating, but I do have a door :)).

I got my chilli peppers in… I plan to start these off back at home.

I have a bit of a headache today so I have retreated home. Not before I tipped one of pots of peppers over 😱. Feeling poorly and gardening don’t really work. I need to make a medical kit for the plot… Pain killers, plasters… Maybe some antiseptic tissues!

But now I need lunch! Just need to move the furry heater (the cat) off my lap (she is making the most off me having a day off work) then back to the plot for stage 2!
