A Walk in the Garden

Hello friends.  I thought today I would take you through another walk through the garden.  It sure has grown up since I last showed you.  Are ya ready?  Lets go.

Our garden starts with some Gladiolas, I think that's what they are.

Check out how big our tomatoes are.  We have about 6 or 7 varieties.  Oh how I love tomatoes. nom nom

 Between the yummie tomatoes we have several different kinds of peppers.

Here we have 2 different kinds of squash.

Here are some beans.  Yellow ones and purple and green.  Variety is the spice of life.

This is eggplant.  This whole time I thought eggs came from chickens.  Who knew?

Here I am in the pumpkin patch.

Check out how tall the corn is!  We've already had some.  yum yum

What ya have here is carrots, broccoli, and kale

 The strawberry patch.  I munched a few while MOM weeded.

Last year MOM craved a pumpkin that looked like my buddy Bert and one like me.  I think this one will be perfect for Bert this year.  Just has to get bigger (gotta fit his snooter on it). hehhe

A bee enjoying the sunflower.  I hope you liked taking a walk through our garden.  But the best part about this garden is that it helps feed so many hungry and homeless people.  Yea I like that part best, even better than eating strawberries and tomatoes.

Day 3 of our Blogville Olympics is upon us.  And today there are 3 events:  Bertie is hosting Bouncing.  And Oskar is hosting Crazy Sleeping Single AND Synchronized Snoozing.  Just click on their names and you will be whisked away to the Olympic Area to watch all the committed athletes strut their stuff.



  1. Your garden is beautiful! Mom is feeling very sad about us not having one this year. My favorite part was the gladiolas and the sunflowers!


  2. What a lovely garden! Me wished ours looked as good as yours!
    Me has come to invite yous to stand on the podium for the SILVER medal for Technical High Jump!

  3. Your garden looks so full. I love both the flowers and the veggies.


  4. Your garden is beautiful still! What a wonderful thing to feed people, Goose. It's like growing love. xoxo

  5. You sure have 4 green paws, Goose. Your garden looks so lush and lovely and yummy :D

  6. Goose, thank you for the tour. What a beautiful garden, full of goodies. How nice that it helps feed people who are hungry. You and your Mommy are so special. God bless you.

    Loveys Sasha

  7. Goose you are making us green with envy. Wow you have green paws. Have a lovely Sunday and why not pop over and meet a new friend today.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. WOW your mom has the green thumb! I have ONE tomato in my backyard, named the ugly Tom and... yeah that's all...

  9. What a beautiful garden! DO you get a bit of tomato every now and then??

  10. Just amazing Goose! So many beautiful plants and because of your TLC they are all producing so much. We think it's totally pawesome that you help the less fortunate in your community.

    We can see from your pictures that you are happy to help out ~ bcuz just look at that smile on your face!

  11. Goose your garden is BEAUTIFUL... What a BOUNTY of Goodness to Enjoy and to SHARE.

  12. I am very jealous of your garden... those tomatoes - I just may fly there to try one. Up where we live, we can only grow short-season and cold stuff, like lettuce, spinich, radishes, and carrots. One year, I'm getting a greenhouse so I can have tomatoes like yours!

    Love the eggplant joke!

    Saw your post about the keys locked in the car. That is a serious fear of mine... but my fear involves locking the dog in the car with the keys and having it be hot outside. I don't know why it scares me so much (I could break the window)... but it does. Glad your friends all waited with you.

  13. Dat's not a's huge..I wills show yooo my garden one day.. That is sooo nice you helps the hungry and homeless..weee's always fink of them...
    Have a great Sunday xx

  14. Good Morning Goose, What a wonderful garden you have-oh so many good veges(especially Kale). You and your mom bless so many, may blessings flow back on you both.
    Have a splendid Sunday.

  15. OMDs Goose I had no idea you had a degree in horticulture!!
    Those are some of the finest looking fresh foodables I've seen
    Hugs Madi

  16. Your garden sounds so delightful - love your descriptions of your journey through it, too. Love from your Cricket

  17. I'm glad you told us what those gladiolas were! Ha roo roo roo! Seriously - those are beautiful and Mom couldn't ID them.
    We LOVE seeing all of your garden stuff! Our mom and dad want to do veggies next year. Mom is taking care of a neighbor's small garden while they're out of town and she brought tomatoes home last night. She and Dad just raved and raved about how sweet they are! Maybe Dave and I will get to help today!
    Great job with the garden, Goose! Thanks for the cool tour!
    Play bows,

  18. We have never visited you before, but had to come and CongaRatulate your grabbing the Silver in the High Jump event! Yes, we knew you were called The Silver Ghost cuz Teri's brother has had 2 Silver Ghosts of his own!

  19. omgoodness! I was just thinking - NO weeds in that garden - then I got to the part about your mom weeding - yep...that sounds like hot hard work....the part my mom never appreciates.

    one time...we ended up with pumpkin overload! don't know why, but there were pumpkins growing EVERYWHERE.

    your peep seems to know gardening much better than mine.

    Good job being the scarecrow, Goose!

  20. Goose, hello from Ducky! I wanted to purrsonally stop by and concatulate you on your silver medal purrformance. Lots of competition in this high jump I am overwhelmed that I won! Lots of purrs to you. Mum says she likes 'silver ghosts'.



  21. That is one great garden you have ther Goose. Your mom works so hard and helps out so many other humans. wE are proud to know you both.

  22. Wow - that is a magnificent garden!
    Thank you for the tour, Goose - you did a very nice job!

  23. I keep telling mom and dad to get out to that garden but they haven't done it yet. I cannot believe it is right there and they don't check it out. We are going to give them a talking to cuz your pics sure make it look wonderful! Thanks Goose!

    Your friends,

    Murphy & Stanley

  24. Your garden is doing so well, Goose. Mom heard on the news that due to the drought only eggplants and pumpkins were doing well. They seem to thrive in the dry weather. We can't wait to see those carved pumpkins. Mom has a pattern for a sibe but it is waaaaaaaaaay too complex for her.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  25. Thank u, the garden is so pretty! :)

  26. That garden looks beautiful! And delicious, how lovely to have such a large garden

  27. WOOF! That garden looks like it has NOMMYS in it!

    ~Stinky Kisses, Mason

  28. Wow ! the garden looks so beautiful ! You are very good gardener (and your Mom too).

  29. That is an awesome garden! You obviously have a green thumb. ;)

  30. Your mom's garden is super beautiful...if i lived there I would be out there everyday munching on the strawberries, and tomotoes and green beans....wowo!

  31. Woof to you Goose!!!! Such a gorgeous and well-tended garden. I would love to have some of the broccoli, kale and beans (oddly enough, I love all greens), but understand that folks far more unfortunate than me need these vegetables. Much love to you - XXOO - Mazzie

  32. Oh, YUM! That garden looks so good. I bet those green tomatoes have been eaten by now. Yes? We only have one tomato on our little tomato plant, but we love it and are very proud of it. Maybe we'll have enough to make tomato pie. Do you like tomato pie, Goose? We think it's delicious!
