Caturday with the Notorious BKL and Friends: Boxed In Edition

Welcome back to Caturday with The Notorious BKL and Friends: Boxed In Edition. Seriously, you would not believe the fights we’ve observed around here this week, all over this Halos clementines box. (And seriously: Talk about your false advertising!)

I think I’d better buy more, soon, just so that each cat can have his or her own… And also, because it’s getting on clementines season again. Yum.

Although if we’re being completely honest here, some cats do fit into a Halos box better than others. Without naming any names or anything.

Nevertheless, he persisted.

Oh and: People also sometimes fit in a box around here, too. But with somewhat less physical violence.

When they think outside of the box, though, each of our three bad kitties has his or her own inner beauty. Jeremy, he is strong.

Lucy, she is enigmatic. And Gnocchi? Well, apparently she doesn’t show up on film this week. 😉

So, how’s your Caturweek (or cat-free week) going?

So, what have you guys been up to this week? It’s been a crazy couple of weeks here — Among other things, High School Guy had Homecoming last weekend, and yesterday we toured the next college on our circuit (NIU). Middle School Guy competed in his conference cross country meet, played his trombone on Band Day, and competed in a big taekwondo tournament (2nd in Extreme forms!).

And I’ve been pulling in some of the last things from the garden. How does yours grow? I’m not great at growing much, but what I can grow is this: Tomatoes and peppers! 🙂

But anyway, that’s about it for this week’s Caturday. So since that’s us for now, I’ll leave you with the usual question: How’s your own Caturweek (or cat-free week) going? And.. be sure to tune in for the next episode in the exciting ongoing adventures of the Notorious BKL and Friends!

Rachel, speaking of tomatoes my daughter has had some kind of fungus on her plants. Have you ever had a problem like that? Would you know if there is something to mix in the beds to prevent it next year? It has happened the last 2 or 3 years. She replaced a lot of the soil. She sprayed them but that was after they got infected It helped a little but I think we might have had a better yield if they had been healthier.

I do not, but maybe try rotating them to different beds next year. I get better tomatoes if I don't grow them in the same place all the time.

It looks like a lot of those are hot peppers. I freeze a bunch of sweet peppers in the fall when I can get them cheap. I got 18 semi red peppers and 2 eggplant for a total of $4 today at the farmers market.

They are. I like freezing hot peppers for use in chili etc. all year.
