Bacon Gardening


Hello Bacon Fans!


It is I – your King – here to wish you a happy and hopefully bacon-filled Saturday!     Are you curious about the title of today’s blog?   GOOD……………….I’m thinking it might be a good idea to ensure that there is plenty of bacon for all of my loyal subjects (YOU) and my own personal household (ME, MOM, DAD, ME ME ME ME ME ME!) so that we never run short or heaven forbid run out of it in the future.

I was inspired in this idea by a graphic I received from my good pal Mauricio, one of the Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head.   Here it is – you will see why I am planning a garden!

BACONSEEDSFROMMAUYES!   Who knew?   My favorite variety too – CRISPY!    So I’m going to get to work this afternoon planting……………………I’ve picked out a greenhouse:


I have a garden supervisor hired:

BACONGARDENER1And a staff of helpers!


Oh – and we even have a GARDEN GNOME!!!!!!!!


So what do you think?    They will begin planting today.   Yes I know it’s not planting season but it’s a special greenhouse and it’s magic – the bacon seeds will produce the best darn crop of crispy bacon you’ve EVER seen!!!!


Thanks Kitties Blue for inspiring this greenhouse!

Sammy, King of Baconia

  1. Good thinking about that greenhouse, Sammy. You’ll have a bumper crop of bacon in no time. 🙂 Thanks to the Kitties Blue for the seeds.


    • My Mom had a greenhouse many years ago – her then husband (#1) built it himself…..2×4’s and huge sheets of plastic – made shelves inside too….it worked GREAT and lasted well after her marriage to #1 ended (!!!) – maybe your Dad could make your Mom one????? Oh wait- what am I saying – that might turn into a DISASSSSTER!

      Hugs, Sammy


  2. There are no rules for growing bacon from seeds. Of course it’s magical and you are just the magician to make it happen, S. And with that kitty gnome watching over it, what could possibly go wrong?

    Love and licks,


    • Excellent! I will need to make sure we’re growing a good crop so you and Flynn can come try it out before we do any distribution – it’s a horrible job but somebody has to do it (haha) so thanks for volunteering!

      Love, Sam


  3. Sammythose bacon seeds are more precious than gold! Wow I had no idea. You might need to double your security. If for any reason, you need to quickly rid yourself of evidence, I volunteer to be your bacon a tor! I love the Garden Gnome
    Hugs Madi your bfff


  4. I don’t know if you can trust those workers not to eat the bacon. I think you need to hire some rabbits, they are vegetarians. Have a great weekend!


  5. Sammy, we have already written two comments, and the site says it is posting them, but they disappear. Mom was ROTFLHAO when she saw that garden gnome. Mauricio says he’d be happy to work as security guard for you greenhouse. He thinks his job as director of security for CSU makes him qualified, and as he has never had bacon, you shouldn’t have to worry about him tasting the crop. This is absolutely the cutest and funniest post! Glad we could help make it possible. Sending lots of love. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


    • Well I found all three of your comments in spam and promptly told WordPress they were NOT Spam – in fact your posts NEVER have gone to Spam before so what’s up with that??? Let’s blame it on Hermione the Hurricane OK? I’m glad that you liked the post today – I thought it was fun and I owe it all to my BACON SEEDS!!!! Mauricio would make a wonderful security guard for the greenhouse and you’re right – he’s uniquely qualified due to his Scouts experience as Security Director for CSU! Thank you so much for the graphic – it’s SO much fun and it was really especially fun to write a post “around” it!

      Love and Hugs, Sammy and Mom


  6. What a great plan, Sammy!!! If you have a successful harvest, you will have to sell those seeds to all your pals (like us) who LOVE bacon too:)

    • Hi Merlin! I hope you had a fabulous birthday – I know that there are a whole lot of us hoping you will be with us for a long time to come dear boy. Bacon sure will be fun to grow from seed!!

      Love, Sammy


  7. Not only do I NOT get bacon this weekend, I barely get to see my human! She is running around to some film festival and I’m stuck here. She says that we have plans together next week (although apparently it still does not include bacon).


    • Poor Summer…..I was just reading on your blog about being abandoned by your human. I do think that you deserve compensation in the form of bacon for being left home with Binga and Boodie!

      Hugs, Sammy


    • Miss Layla is the storm part of the hurricane that came up the coast from Florida? I hope you will be alright there………….we didn’t get any of Hurricane Hermione here but along the Virginia coast there was a lot of rain/wind and super duper high tides. We had two VERY breezy days but the sun was out. Please be careful and stay safe………..

      We send you hugs….
      Love, Sammy and Mom Pam


  8. Wow! A Bacon Garden! That would be so cool! Right now wes got Turkey Bacon! Mommy and mes had bacon and eggs for supper on Thursday night and mes ate a whole piece (in little bits a few at a time) Mommy was sort of impressed. She liked that I ate so much, but she was kind of choked that she only cooked 3 pieces…
    Loves you and many kisses
