Autumn colors of summer : tomato harvest #growyourown #gardenchat

Out my sunroom window today … Happy Sunday!

Can you believe this… #brrr in #ohio !

Cats have always been a very important part of my life. When I was in 3rd grade my elementary teacher encouraged me to start a collage of some of my favorite things.  After flipping through the pages of magazines and putting together a collection if was quit apparent that I loved cats.  Today I take care of six outdoor cats in our country garden and one indoor cat named Jack.   Today I’m contributing to #caturday by sharing my indoor kitty Jack with tips on keeping cats out of your garden.

Happy Indoor Kitty

Consider adopting a rescue kitty to keep indoors is the best way to keep a cat out of the garden.  Cats can be wonderful pets indoors providing entertainment and more. However, if you are having issues with felines digging and using your soil as a little box here are some tips on keeping them out of your garden.

Keeping Cats Out of Your Home Garden

  • Plectranthus ornatus sold under the names of ‘Scaredy Cat’ or Coleus canina, is a great deterant for felines. This plant is a annual in my area and can be found at most independent garden centers.
  • DO NOT plant catnip!
  • Motion sensor watering devices work great in small gardens.  Usually a cat remember when they’ve gotten wet and will stay clear after a few times of getting drenched.


Autumn Color

Autumn Chase Are you enjoying the colors of the season?  I’ve been sharing some of my favorites on Instagram this weekend.  The image to the left is of wild turkeys I caught crossing the street while traveling up to  the Ann Arbor Michigan area this past week.  How cool is that?!   Tomorrow I dedicate my post to Autumn Color so please stop back.

Happy #Caturday Everyone!
