Mime mombean was surprised this week when the mail person at work stopped by her desk with a package. Well, she got really excited when she opened it up and saw that it really was for me! (I forgave her for opening it up at work with out me.) From our coolerest pals KC and Misty.
When she got home and showed me that it was some prime nip and some seeds to grow my own fresh nip and kitty grass! I knew in a flash that it would be the start of my farming career. I did some research on the web and gave her a list of supplies I'd need for farming in our apartment. She stopped by the plant store on the way home and got me 2 clay pots and saucers to go under them and some potting soil called 'Black Gold'. Its all organic and has something called 'worm castings' (whatever that is) in it. She told the man at the store that it was for growing cat nip. He laughed and told her it would grow great 'nip.She put the soil in the pots for me and brought it over to the window shelf for me to take over. First in go the seeds. Positioning is key!Then some water...And check to make sure its all good. Yeah, that looks right.Now I just have to wait....And wait .........................................I'm just waitin' here........................................Oh, man, how long is this gonna take?
Thank you very, very much KC & Misty!
I'll post some more pictures as soon as something happens. It may take a few sleeps though. Oh, I didn't plant all the seeds, I saved some for a second and third crop.
Oh, and non-farming kitties can be found at The Carnival Of The Cats on Sunday, and at Weekend cat blogging at WCB hosted by Astrid, Kashim & Othello. For the best in cat blogging every day its the catblogosphere!
