OK friends. Try to act real casual like when reading this post. All natural.

The PM is busy planning the veg and flowers gardens. Catalogues strewn all over the kitchen table. I always lend a paw, pressing pages open for her, licking her hand while she writes, you know, just saying "I love you".

I started reading a page I was pressing and I saw this!



HOLY CROW!!!!!!!!!! I thought I must be dreaming. Succulent hens and chicks. Seeds for Chick-Hen in the garden.



I read the description and they seem a tad colourful but I am liking the fleshy part!!!

I am thinking of dropping some hints over the weekend so the PM includes these seeds in the order. I might even get the wee ones in on it. She's lets them plan part of the garden. You should do some page pressing too this weekend! We could have fields of fowl come August, my friends!!!

OK, don't get too excited though. Put your serious face on like me.



Good. Good. Our little secret.

Succulent hens and chickens!!! We gotta get some of those seeds! "Fields of fowl,"....... what a dream come true! Best of luck getting the PM to include those in the order!

Forever Foster said...

*whispers* that's a great find, Goldie. They sure look pretty, we bet super yummy birds will come out of those plants.

The Island Cats said...

Wow! We didn't know you could grow chick-hens! We gotta get some of those seeds too!

Cat with a garden said...

That sounds great, Goldie! The picture however looks cunningly like something mom has in one of her pots and I have to report that they are not even fun whapping. They don't run, you know.
Maybe ours are already hens...

Whoa....Jonesie is reading this and she is stunned. She had no idea she could grow chick-hens!!! We'll be investigating because I love chick-hen!!!!

Ariel said...

"Darn it" I live in the city so no garden. A field of fowl sounds so yummy :)

Just remember not to lay right ON the important words or pictures. Just place a paw right beside them. If you cover it up, the silly human will never get the idea!!

Purrs,

Dear Goldie,
I hate to be a buzzkill, but we have those at our house. They don't cluck, they don't have feathers and the only thing they are good for is whapping...
Whoever named them needs to be sued for false representation!

Tom and Tama-Chan said...

Do you get our seeds and bulbs from Vesseys? Our #1 loves going to their big gardening centre when she's on the Island!

Your Pals,
Tom, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan

Hi Goldie. Succulent chick-hens sound delicious, but we don't see any pretty feathers there to play with?? Don't forget to point out the catnip plants to the PM!

PinkynAsh said...

Goldie, you are our hero. We had no idea you could grow succulent hens and chick-hen right in your own yard. We will have to find a catalog like that.

Daisy said...

Eureka! I am going to try to grow a succulent Purple Chick-hen!

But $6.75 for 1/128 oz. might be over my budget.

Eric and Flynn said...

Wow! Chick-hen plants. We want some as well.

Tuck said...

Chick-hen plants? It sounds too good to be true!

Fin said...

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

ROTFM! This was our biggest laugh of the day! Fleshy, succulent...no wonder you were so tempted! There is a very pretty wildflower that grows in Oregon where Teri used to live, called an Elegant Cats Ear. It's soft and fuzzy like ours are!

Sweet Praline said...

Looks like a great idea for planting to me!

Country Cats said...

Oh my gosh! We can grow our own succulent hens and chicks? We definitely need to get some of those magic seeds.

A Few Good Cats said...

Wow, what a discovery! Who knew you could plant hens and chickens?

Cliff and Olivia said...

Dear Goldie. Thank you so much for sharing. We have to try and find a way to make our Humans get some of those. Fleshy hens and chickens... that would be great in our garden!
