Caturday!

BACONDOCTOR

Following Doctors’ Orders!  

BACON!

Yep – never ignore your doctor’s advice…………we’re definitely following my doctor and Mom is cooking bacon right now…………..yep – nothing smells as delish!

BACONBEG8After breakfast is over, Mom says we will need to water all the plans on the deck and on the front porch.   They’re growing by leaps and bounds…………but with all the hot sunny days, she has to water EVERY MORNING.   Mother Nature hasn’t helped with some RAIN so Mom had to step up!

The newly discovered (after 11 years!) deck on the house

The deck box plants are blooming like mad!

Mom’s sweet potato vines are getting long – and we know that we’ll have a good crop of ‘taters this Fall when Mom cuts back the vines and cleans out the planters!

Halp!  I'm in jail on the front porch!

What was that noise????  I think it was a chipmunk!

See?  No shortage of excitement around my house on a Saturday……………..but the best part of course is the start to the day with BACON!

Yep - this is my policy for sure!!

Yep – this is my policy for sure!!

HAPPY CATURDAY EVERYBODY!

    • Mom and Dad are out on the porch in the morning with coffee and on the porch in the evening with a glass of wine (beer for Dad)……..I’m out there whenever I can get out there because I like lying in the sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon! Oh – and bacon – lots of it!

      Love, Sammy

  1. Mother of Kittens!! Look at that sweet potato vine! Mom is jealous. We don’t have the weather for sweet potatoes or a long enough season. I’ll bet those sweet potatoes are wonderful fresh. Hey. I’m the first one here…..do I get a badge for being the first commentater?

  2. My human is not a sweet potato fan… but she thinks the plants are really pretty! Her boyfriend does like sweet potatos – if she was good at growing stuff (which sadly, she isn’t – the catnip did well because of her neglect), she would grow some for him.

    • My Mom didn’t used to like sweet potatoes that much – BUT now she can’t get enough of them…..go figure. We agree that the vines are gorgeous – Mom usually gets the purple ones AND the lime green ones (foliage not potatoes!) and mixes them up – this year she just got green.

  4. Yummy! Enjoy that bacon, Sammy. Your mom’s plants are gorgeous! Motor Mommy won’t have to water hers today: we had an inch of rain last night! Lots of thunder and lightning, too. I hid under the bed on my crinkle pad til it was over.

  5. It looks beautiful at your house, Sammy! We have had a ton of rain but now heading for a dry, hotter than hell streak of 98 to 100 degrees. Enjoy your bacon! So, I hear that there will be CHEESEBURGERS… yes, I am sure you could get your Mom to add some bacon!

    • STAY COOL………..we highly recommend CHILLED WINE on your porch or in the shade!!!!! Cheeseburgers would be a nice touch too of course……we have a slightly cooler day ahead with highs in the 80s instead of high 90s.

  6. That is my kind of Doctor 🙂 I didn’t realize you could grow sweet potatoes like that- great idea. very nice deck too. I hope that chipmunk doesn’t eat the sweet potatoes. Have a nice day. XO

    • It’s so funny because I have bought sweet potato vines at the nursery as accents in my planters for YEARS and never realized until a couple of years ago that there were actual POTATOES growing in that soil! Last year we harvested them (not that many because I had them in pots but in the ground they would do GREAT!) and made sweet potato chips which were delicious! The squirrels, chipmunks and birds leave the vines and pots alone so I guess they’re not fans of sweet potatoes.

  10. I didn’t know you could grow sweet potatoes on your deck! I’m not really a fan, but the dogs love them. We’ve been lucky to get just enough rain that we can pass on the watering, well, once in a while anyway. We’ve got lots of nice tomato plants with lots of tomatoes, but if you don’t water them daily, the tomatoes will protest and go bad!

    • Mom had NO idea that she’d actually get potatoes from those vines – now she feels a bit silly that she didn’t realize that would happen but for YEARS she’d plant the vines just because they were so pretty in the planters – – – at the end of the season everything would get cut back or the soil/plants put in the compost heap but LAST Fall, the little boys from next door came over to “help” and they dug around in the planter soil and FOUND POTATOES! They were edible and quite tasty although SMALL because they’d had to grow in a planter vs. in the ground or in a BIG pot. So you can definitely grow them on your deck – and they were delicious!

Our garden is thirsty all the time but last night we had a nice BIG rain – Mom did NOT have to water today for a change. We used to have TONS of chipmunks around here – now they have vanished.
