However, there's no rule that says a cat can't help her Mama make and keep her new year resolution. So, what's Mama's new year resolution? TO BE A BETTER FARMER. Serious.
We have helped Mama sow, transplant, water and fertilise her garden. We call it our Garden in the Sky. May it stay lush just like the garden we had in our Sydney home. My job is to make sure my sisfurs and brofurs don't sabotage Mama's hard work. Remember the case of Michael versus pandan leaves?
This time around, we have culinary herbs like ginger, rosemary, polygornum (Vietnamese mint or kesom), kaffir lime (limau purut) and bird chili. As well as some ornamental plants like palm, kalanchoe, mondo grass and even a mosquito repellent. Another great news, Mama had sown some vegetable seeds and so far we've seen some crimson okra seedlings peeking out.
|Hey...garden snoopervising is not an easy task, OK? I have to make sure nobody chomp off the new plants.|
|Can you see some okra seedlings peeking out from the planter boxes? Hanging them outside the balcony is to prevent some furry climbers to use the boxes as toilets....as they had done in the past.|
|Our Garden in the Sky (Brad has nicknamed it the Scenic Toilet!!!)....|
So, there you have it. My new year resolution is to help my Mama keep her new year resolution. May the garden prosper.....and here's to more green yaks on the floor....teeheehee...purrr...meow!
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012!!!!!
