Pulling Weeds with the Crew

Posted by Francesca

The other morning when we woke up, a gentle rain was falling.  I was getting a little stir crazy and told Sharkey to find our rain slickers so that we could go outdoors.  We trotted down to where the lilies grow and we found the crew wearing rain slickers, too.  They were busy weeding and it looked like they needed our expert help.

The rain doesn't always stop us, Frenchies, from going outside, in fact - we love putting on our yellow rain slickers!

Hi Pete!  Do you fellows need any help weeding the lily beds?

It looks like there are a lot of weeds that need to be pulled!

Sharkey, don't even ask for permission.  Let's just jump in and do it!  After all, we do love, love, love Martha's lilies when they bloom later in the summer!

OK then - let me use Martha's favorite tool - the Japanese cultivator.  I'm pretty handy with it, don't you think?

And I'll use this garden knife to loosen the roots of these weeds so we can pull them out easier.

It's really fun to get down and dirty in the garden.

I think I need to be a lot taller to use this hoe - a little help please?

Look how well I'm doing!  I should have this bucket filled with weeds in no time at all.

Looks great!  Good job crew!  Now we just have to be patient for all of these lilies to bloom.  I can't wait!

  • Good Morning F & S

    Love the slickers but working in the rain? Don't you just hate when the beads of water crash down on your eyes and ears? YUK - no thank you I'm not a mudder. Mom says she's not a mudder either, she doesn't like to play golf in the rain. I think we're going to get heavy rain here tonight, I don't like the thunder part it scares me :(

    Well it's Friday do you two girls have any fun plans? Mom is staying home all weekend no golf - YEAH!!!! She wants to work around the gardens and get ready for her trip. Dad is taking her away for her 50th birthday next week. I'm sad that means Super Nanny is moving in. He is taking her to Italy so she can take cooking classes. I hope she gets some recipes for italian dog treats :)

    Well have a great weekend everyone.

  • Hello Ladies,
    You both certainly are hard workers. I draw the line at working in the rain---my beautiful ears are prone to trouble, so I think I will just run out in a rain slicker. Are those going to be part of Mama Martha's line at Petsmart? I love them, and most things aren't broad enough for me as Frenchie. The rains should stop today and working out in the gardens after that when the soil is nice and moist to pull those weeds.Your Mama's new lawn mower sure does look deluxe.
    Zoe, how long will you be out of touch when your parents go to Italy? Do your Mom and Dad scipe you?

    Well, everyone I hope you have a great weekend.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Just what the farm needs, color coordinated worker Frenchies to brighten things up. I bet everything smells nice too. I guess GK doesn't have a yellow slicker to fit him hmmm? :wink:

    Thanks for the Favorite Comments shout out! :lol:

    Everyone have a fun, happy weekend!

  • Hi Francesca and Sharkey: WOW! What happened to all the pups and kitties who write on this blog? Where did they go? It is almost 6pm and its time for my dinner and I don't see anyone writing except Zoe today. Is everyone all right? Hmmmm......

    Francesca and Sharkey, I sure like your raincoats. I like to feel the rain on me though. Don't like it when it pours down and neither does my daddy. We stay in when that happens. My momma said she would try to be up earlier in the morning so that she could help me write in. I sure hope so.

    Zoe - I hope your mom and dad have a great trip.

    Well, it's time for my dinner and I gotta go. Have a great weekend everyone. Take care. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • It looked like a fun day to play in the mud....you guys look way too cute in those rain slickers!
    and always helping out...gee you two pups are just the greatest, always helping.

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    I have a yellow “slicker” too. It took mommy some time before she found one large enough to fit me. I guess that the larger dogs don’t go out in the rain as much as the smaller ones. It seems that way when looking for something in the “pet” stores. Now as for the pulling of those weeds, that seems like too much work for me. I’m afraid that I will miss my nap time. I do like to lay and watch mommy work in her flowers; but no helping. Have a good weekend everyone. By the way, why didn’t GK go out in the rain with you two? Oh I know, fur balls are hard to clean the mud off of.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi Girl Friends, I don't really like to go out in the rain most days, but if I could help you girls with the weeding of the lilies, I would be there in a minute! Where was handsome G.K.? I'll bet he would love to help you, too. Martha's farm looks better and better all the time and I'm sure part of the reason is how helpful you girls are!! Have a great weekend and talk to you later. Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hi Basil
    No my mom does not scipe me :( Mom's sister moves in with us and she is here 24/7 - no chance for me to have fun and get in trouble. She does bring her daughter who I just love to play with she is 3 and we have fun. I must say I do enjoy chewing the heads off her Barbie Dolls :)

    Super Nanny takes good care of all us and my mom will call every day to make sure we are okay.

    I'll be bloging next week but Super Nanny won't type for me.

    Enjoy your weekend :)

    Zoe
