In Phase One, The Mom and Dad raked about five acres of the Big Piney Woods and are now ready for Phase Two.
In Phase Two, The Dad will be working on a retaining wall and spreading grass seed and fertilizer. The Mom will be spreading bull.......excuse me........cow pies.....the real kind, the kind kids like to walk in barefoot and throw at each other. The Mom and Dad went to the neighbors farm (it is a steer ranch) and Farmer Jack loaded the Metal Monster truck named Blu with four buckets of rich steer dodo the Mom calls Black Gold. (I call it just plain stinky.) While The Mom was waiting for Farmer Jack to load them, she played with a black and white woofy. She tossed a plastic disk to him and he would jump up in the air and catch it, bringing it back to her, all slobbery. She smelled all dogified, so I huffed away, having nothing to do with her.
In Phase Three, The Dad will be using the Grass Eating Monster (aka lawn mower) and the Skinny Cutting Monster, (aka edge trimmer) and The Mom will be spreading the Black Gold on her flower beds and planting lots of flowers. She bought a whole bunch today, wave petunias, wallflowers, gerbera daisies and pansies. She says this is a start.
In Phase Four, The Mom and Dad sit back, relax, and enjoy their work, inbetween mowing, watering, weeding, killing bugs, more fertilizing, which takes up most of the summer. There really seems to be something wrong with this picture because, come fall, it all dies anyway.

Our mommy used real live farm doo doo last year for her tomatoes - cow and sheep mixed togefur. it stinked real bad. she says she's gonna do it again this summer. she's trying to figure out what kind of fer-ta-lizer to use for the blueberry and raspberry plants she boughted. you'd think she'd figure this out 'afore she buys the stuff. - Miles

Phew - stinky! Please don't give my mum ideas, I don't want my garden smelling of doo doo. I agree with you about the effort humans put into gardening and then it all dies anyway - it's a puzzle to me. And then some of the green plants they pull out and call "weeds" - one green plant looks much like another to me!

That's a lot of cow dodo! Your human pets are going to need one heck of a bath when they're finished, I'm sure! I hope you two don't take it upon yourselves though to help them. In other words: Don't pull an Isis!

You should go see Unbearable Bob and tell him you have some Cow Pie for him! ;-)

Maybe they're missing a step or not doing one right so they die?

Wow all sorts of busy stuff going on at your house. What does Mistrie think of all the activity in the yard? I can't wait to see your pretty yard for the Catolympics!

We has a nice garden, but no one werks in it enuf. Mom says she needs more help. Dad doesn't want to. The boy will if Mom pays him, but not furry long. Mom says she finally knows what all the weeds in the grass are:
(whatever it is, it's not grass)
She also says the grass is always greener in the flower bed.
