Green Thumbs Thursday!

IMG_5071As Mummy has just pointed out whee does not has thumbs to be green but that is beside the point. Today in the garden whee noticed something. Mummy is a truly terrible gardener but somehow some things in our garden have survived. Here is out garden so far.

Whee started with three tomato plants, one basil plant, one curled parsley plant and one cucumber plant.

The cucumber was nicknamed the unlucky cucumber as it was repeatedly dropped and Mummy believed it was DOA (dead on arrival). Within days it had vanished. It’s vanishing was blamed on notorious criminal slugs and snails reported to be operating in the area, however, imagine efurryones surprise when whee found a weak looking little stalk today:

The basil plant was rather more unlucky and died pretty quickly when Mummy forgot to water in during the hot days. There is nothing left to pigture!

The curled parsley plant might have been over nommed and under watered because it doesn’t really look too well!

Finally the good news! One set of plants are doing well! Whee will be having tomatoes furry furry soon!

Also, Mummy’s apple tree which has done nothing for two years has suddenly decided to give her a baby apple this year! Hooray!

The Big Reveal!

Well lets see who guessed right . . .

In a shocking turn of events, Colin Caterpillar is in custody for the cucumber crunching. He is also believed to be responsible for the ravishing of next door’s vegetables! (Colin is a Aglais urticae for anyone who is interested in that sort of thing)

And Samantha Snail was snared for the theft of one rather small basil plant. Whee believe Severus Slug may have been working with Samantha but whee don’t have the proof!

Did you guess right? Are you impressed by our investigating?

All in a days work for the CIA – Cavy Investigations Agency!

Have a terrific Tuesday, knowing that the gardens are a safe place to be once more!

Salad Stealing Suspects . . .

Ok, whee have very carefully analysed the evidence. Whee spent a long time at the scene of the crime and now I, Inspector Basil of the Hutch have a list of suspects. If you missed it, whee have a naughty  thief who has been nomming on our home grown vegetables. See here.

Suspects:

Severus Slug – Seen in the area, looking suspiciously chubby

Samantha Snail – Seen up that end of the garden and a known offender, who last made off with Mummy’s marigolds two weeks ago

Scuzzy Squirrel – Was on a date with a pretty red squirrel and The Oak Restaurant can confirm this.

Colin the Caterpillar – Was seen in the area, and found on the edge of one of the pots in which a crime was committed

Boots, the neighbourhood kitten – was spotted bothering the koi carp in  a furfriends garden two roads away at the time of the crime

Felix the Fox – Claims to have been somewhere else but no one else can confirm this.

So as you can see, I have narrowed it down. Unfortunately the clues are conflicting and  I believe the cucumber cruncher and the basil burglar may be two separate crimes.

Dun dun dun

This investigating has been tiring work. Who do you think did it? Let us know and whee will have the big reveal and arrests in the next post!
