Beautiful Bacon

Beautiful Bacon?   Is there such a thing as UGLY bacon?

I think NOT!

I hereby declare it Saturday Bacon Bonanza Day across the land!

I hereby declare it Saturday Bacon Bonanza Day across the land!

Would I celebrate a substance that was not delicious and fabulous and for which I am the #1 spokescat?  Heck no.   Bacon and I are best pals.   Bacon and I spend EVERY Saturday together.   I love sharing my adoration of bacon with you every week (or more often!) and I hope you look forward to Saturday Bacon too.   If not, you’d better have a little talk with your humans.   ASAP!

I thought you might enjoy a little update on our fabulous crop of bacon plants which we grew from the bacon seeds Kitties Blue sent to us this summer.   The Greenhouse Bacon Supervisor is happy to report that we should be having quite a wonderful harvest at some point as our plants mature and blossom and at last we will see bacon flowers, leading to bacon “fruit” and then it’s just a hop skip and jump from THAT to the breakfast table!

Our Supervisor is on top of things and making sure the crew inspects the plants daily and gives them whatever care they require to stay HEALTHY and HAPPY!

No critters here!

Our official GARDEN GNOME is our “backup plan” to keep all the little bacon babies  safe from marauders and bacon bandits……..nobody goes up against a GARDEN GNOME that’s for sure!

So see?  Everything is good and on schedule.   Our bacon crop is in good hands……………….(or paws).

While I wait for a FRESH crop of bacon, I shall enjoy the bacon that my Mom has purchased from the grocery which of course will NOT measure up to HOME GROWN which we hope to have early this Summer…………………..keep your paws crossed that things continue to go well.   You can be sure we’ll be having a BIG harvest party when the time comes and all of you will be invited!

MMMMM......a bacon sammmmich for breakfast!

  1. Sammy! Did you know that there are some folks who eat something OTHER than bacon on Saturdays???!!! It’s true: I’ve heard rumors….. I sure hope that doesn’t ever happen at your house! 😉

  2. Sammy, those bacon plants are PRIME! You and your supervisors have done an outstanding job in obtaining and nurturing them to the healthy condition they are now in. I was wondering, do they produce flowers from which the bacon comes or do the strips come out from the limbs? Altogether something each of we kitties are looking forward to! Ommmm nom nom nom.

    • Katie I’m going to be curious to see how the bacon forms but I believe we will see bacon buds, then flowers, then itsy witsy bitsy bacons which will grow until maturity then WE EAT!

    • My Mom has ALWAYS wanted a greenhouse. A bazillion years ago her first hubby made one for her out of 2x4s and big sheets of plastic. It had a space heater inside…….and it actually worked VERY VERY WELL. Amazing.

      Hugs, Sammy

  3. The little gray tabby looks like a Suzie Cat????????????????
    No bacon here… again.
    I had a little talk with my hoomin and he was not sympathetic. All he cared about was that his coffee had not been ground fine enough… pfftt.

    • UHOH…..I thought we could count on CH for a little “bacon love” for his charming wife as a treat on Saturdays! Do I have to have a little talk with him????????? You’re right – the cat does look like Suzie – I wonder if that’s who it is – I’ll ask the Greenhouse Supervisor if Suzie’s doing some moonlighting!

      Hugs, Sammy
