It was a gorgeous day to do our morning rounds, and the yard cats were taking full advantage of it. 😀
It’s a good thing we’re not trying to keep the grass alive around the cat’s shelter. 😀 This spot is where a smaller old dog house was, when we first moved here, and the cats roll around in the spot so much, no grass or weeds are growing into it. 😀
As you can see, the based of this linden tree is another favorite spot they like to roll in!
They get so, so filthy! Enough to turn and orange cat black! 😀
In other things, I found a nice little surprise this morning.
The third dancing gourd seed has sprouted!
I honestly forgot how many seeds I planted in there.
The main reason we used peat pots to start the gourds is so that we can just bury the pot into the garden and reduce transplant shock. Which means thinning out the seedlings. The problem is, most of the seedlings we’ve got so far are looking really strong and healthy! Among the luffa, there’s really just one sprout that is smaller and would be thinned out, but the rest are doing so very well! I want to plant them all! 😀
We’ve got over a month before we can transplant any gourds at all, so we’ll see how they are and make decisions then.
