Farmer T

I thought you all might enjoy a little Monkeybutt-dog fun!

This is the first year we’ve had a veggie garden.  In the past, I’ve grown tomatoes and cucumbers in containers because nothing tastes better in the summer than fresh tomatoes and cukes, but in the past, if it didn’t have pretty flowers, I didn’t grow it.  This year, we decided we’ve got the space, and produce is expensive and dog-only-knows what sorts of chemicals, etc. end up on our food, so why not grow our own.  And, as you might imagine, with the new garden comes a learning curve, right?  I would expect this.  However, I did not expect THIS to be part of the learning curve:

Picking blackberries



I's helpin'!

I loves blackberries!

It’s gotten so bad, I can’t even let Tosca come into the garden, because she picks EVERYTHING!!! — All my blueberries, strawberries, green beans, peas, tomatoes and more.  Zephyr prefers to be on Mousie-Patrol  in the garden, but she loves her veggies, too, especially the sugar peas, blueberries and green beans.

Who knew!!!

We are some hard-working girls!

  1. Yum, yum. I always ate all my mom’s strawberries, tomatoes, green peppers, mint, parsley and even a couple of her pretty flowers. Dogs who don’t graze in buffet gardens just don’t know what they’re missing! Fruit and veggies taste good and are good for you!

  2. too funny… although that behavior is not limited to monkey-dogs… I have a photo of Abby standing up on her long back legs picking peaches off our tree!

    Cute pics!

  3. too cute – we love the pictures at the blackberries…that could be painful! we don’t have any ‘veggie scavengers’ here…but sam does find it convenient to pee on the end of the lima bean row……

  4. OMD! Those pictures were too funny! LOVE it! Chili Dawg was a scavenger for tomatoes. Finchy has never really gotten into sampling (I think he prefers to sample from laying at the kids’ feet), but he does like to pee on the plants instead.
