Well this months we were holding off a number of days so we could do our
Green Stubby Report on the Earth Day Weekend.
(I means... hellos!! makes sense rights?)
Ok so this month's report is all about....
To start withs I would like to do a shout outs to our angel in the sky, Stubby.
Stubby I know you are watching from up theres. I hope you liked how everyone celebrated the Earth this weekend!
This is how we celebrated......
Well to kick off our weekend Mum and me wents on an evening walk around Deer Lake.
Here is a shot of me sitting on the beach.
It was dusk.
• We watch the bats fly around above the water trying to catch bugs.
• We listened to frogs croak.
• We watched the ducks swim past.
Then we sat down on a bench and looked out on the lake.
• We thought about how peaceful it is here.
• How all the insects, birds and animals are connected to this lake.
Then it got darks quick!
Come on Mum time to go homes!
I can hardly see the boardwalk!!
The Next Day was Earth Day.
We celebrated by working in our garden.
Our garden connects us so closely to the Earth.
This year we have created a veggie garden where the herb garden used to be.
(The herbs have been relocated.)
This is our first time at an actual "veggie garden"
This was a number of weeks back
We started the seeds indoors
Looks at them now!
They are ready to go outsides.
Here is the prepped garden bed.
(We have kept the chives, onion and fennel in the this area.)
Kizzy assists with planting and inspecting.
She said Mum dids a good job.
Now to feed them their food.
Did someone say FOOD?
Mum said "No Winston not food for you, it is special for the plants"
Let me see Mum! I wanna make sures!
Oh ok....yup not for me!
(see how dirty Mum got her hands? She says that it makes you feel more connected to the earth when you get your hands in the soil)
I helped Mum plant the food stakes then we watered the veggies.
Here they are...
We have carrots, sugar snap peas, alaska snow peas, beans and tomatos.
Cucumber isn't ready for planting yet.
(We planted them a little later.
When they are ready they will go into a container near this garden.)
Now we cross our fingers and hope for the best!
Next on our list...
cleaning the birdbath
Mum scrubbed all the dirt and algea from it and filled it with fresh water.
(yes, that is Kizzy's butt on the far right! She is checking out the path behind the gate!)
We then filled up our bird feeder and hung it ups
Within seconds the chickadees were onto it snacking away!
Just as we were heading in to wash ups Kizzy founds a cool bug hanging outs on a pot.
Kizzy wanted to plays with it but Mum said.... NO WAY!
Mum said that playing with it would annoy it and make it angry.
It will sting Kizzy and that would hurt and cause swelling.
Mum tooks her kneeling pad and the bug walked onto it
then she tooks it out of the yard to the greenbelt.
The bug then flew aways.
Most people would swat and try to kills it.
We don't do that. Everything on earth has it's purpose.
In the house Mum washed her hands.
She then dried them on this towel.
(Tika was helping Mum wash ups)
Here is a closer looks at our kitchen towel...
We gots these from Michele over at It's Tiffy Time.
We all know her as "Stubby's Momma" but now she is momma to Tiffy.
We luv these towels!
(She also gave us a cool bag made from recycled plastic bottles.
Mum uses it everyday!)
This towel reminds us to help our planet.
Today in the garden was only a small amount of work that we need to do.
It is always ongoing work keeping up the garden....
it is one small part we do in helping our planet stay healthy.
We would luv to hear what you did to celebrate our Earth Day.
This concludes this month's Green Stubby Report.
Keeping it green!
