Why da momee haz dee-zertud us

Mommy: "Delilah! Are you sleeping on the job again?"

Delilah: "Mommy. You ought to know by now that I am the garden cat, and when I need to take a break from this non-stop work, I will.

Maybe you should go see what Uncle Maxi is up to. I hear he is back in the woods rolling in his latest shipment of 'nip."

Mommy: "Maxi!! MaximiLLIAN! You come in and take your medicine right now."

Maximillian: (((Huh??))) Oh for nips sake. Ever since I got sick Mommy has been over protective. I can't even cough without her going ballistic.

Mommy, maybe you should go stop Daddy from making those big bunkers in the veggie garden. Has he flipped?"


Delilah: "Uncle Maxi, those are not bunkers. (At least I don't think they are!) Daddy, have you been following my instructions to the tee? Have you checked for slugs BEFORE you planted the lettuce?"

"Oh... and have you pulled all those weeds yet? I can't even roll my little cart up to MY greenhouse because of all those darned weeds!"

"As you can see, I have been very busy instructing Mommy on how to plant seeds in MY greenhouse... those starts below are almost ready to go into the beds."


"And those trays below are all freshly sown with spinach and mesclun salad mix for the chef."


"Here is MY first crop of salad greens... I think Chef Matt will be pleased when he sees what a wonderful job I have done."



"And of course let's not forget the 120 bulbs of garlic that I instructed Daddy and Mommy on how to plant. I snoopervised each and every hole."

"The "Toy Choi" is almost ready to harvest. Somehow, I think I will be having tuna pie when Mommy steams these."


"Gardening is very hard work Mommy. You should know that by now from watching ME!

On that note, it's time to take a much needed nap and dream about my sweet Angus Mhor."

Your mom sure likes to play in the dirt. But if it helps keep Maxi in nip, go for it! Hard work pays off. Extra naps.

Wow Delilah, you guys have a great garden! It must be hard work for you to oversee everything every day! Your mom must have two green thumbs (and your dad too!)

And Maxi, enjoy the nip but listen to your mom and take your medicine. We want you to stay feeling better!

Everything is looking wonderful! Especially those salad greens. They look very yummy :-D You're doing an excellent job helping your Mommy and Daddy in the garden, Delilah :-) Keep up the good work.

Sunny's Mommy said...

My Daddy wanted to get that animal thing :-0 Fortunately my Mommy said it was too many dollies for now and they did not bring that animal thing home! I overheard my Mommy say that my Daddy was petting that animal thing in the store!! Can you imagine that?!! Petting that animal thing, when he's got ME!

Looks like a lot of hard work to garden. But when the food comes in I bet it is all worth it.

Thanks for all of your hard work on CCSI V: The Old Famous Caper. This week marks when the show will air. You did a fantastic job in helping that this will be another award winning show.

wow Delilah! you've done a fantastic job on the garden. i am glad your beans followed your instructions so well. all those greens look so nommable!

you deserve a long nap in the sun. i hope your weeds get pulled up so your beans can take your wagon around like you're a queen in her carriage!

Maxi, tell your mommy when you're rolling in a bed of nip, you are getting your meds.

Dr. T, You were terrific in the latest CCSI caper. We miss your posts, but we understand your mom is busy growing green things so she can feed you.

We hope Maxi is doing okay! And the rest of you.
