Satisfactory Saturday

Yesterday Äiti was out working on the catio and in the garden. She is not exactly a gardener, but is optimistic that this year she will grow something to eat. Her first task was to attend to us: she cleaned out the old soil from Poo Corner, supervised by Jaava.
 Jura checked all was in order and tested the refreshed facilities.
 She then dug out an area of the garden to become a 'raised bed'. Now we like raised beds, but this looks more like one huge litter tray to us!  She is hoping to grow vegetables, but we'll believe that when we see it. There will be kissanminttu in some of the pots - she has been successful with this is  the past but it does not survive the winter. Gardening in Finland (North) can be a bit of a challenge.
In the meantime, Poo Corner was well used.
Indoors, Tessie was stretching a bit, perhaps responding to the slightly warmer air.
And in fact the first dandelions were flowering in the garden. Summer is coming!

It's nice to see Tessie waking up! As for Äiti's gardening adventures... we will see about that!

Tell Aiti a few chick-hens in the yard wouldn't be too bad, either.
Yummy! heh-heh

Good luck with the veggies!

Happy Caturday!

Hurrah for you, Tessie! We're so happy to see you! Bet you're hungry and thirsty.

When I was walking in the fields with mum today, the dandelion seeds were blowing everywhere. Mum said it was like a snowstorm. I hope Aiti's gardening goes well.

Yay Tessie! Perhaps Aiti should bring her that dandelion?? That yard work looks like too much effort to the Human, but I think it looks very interesting. I would like to watch it. Or dig in it.
