garden updates + a hot tip about keeping cats from wreckign your plants 

we moved at the start of may and since then my little germination stations have evolved considerably!!

turns out that carpet tape is strong enough to keep my cats from being able to bat the containers down, so as long as they are covered they are safe!


we couldn't even get a picture of him because he would not stop leaning in for pets, so here's the best one we got

food pics ft cat 

i went out to go sit in a cafe and do homework and ended up coming home with two adorable mini lemon meringue pies

(i got one on the way to the cafe and enjoyed it so much i went back on my way home for more... but theyre all made in the lil bakery you can see from the main part of the store so yknow )

bloody piercing pics 

wow i love being in public w a bloody face

(jk i am incredibly stressed abt it... all i did was sit quietly in lectures and try to drink a little coffee and this happened)

garden process pics! lil sproutlings! 

my sweet peppers are already getting too tall for the container! also in that container are some lil basil bbs

its still not the warmest by the window so i don't want to take them entirely out of a warm space yet, i might just have to transfer the tall ones to a bigger plastic container i can still hang up away from kitties. maybe like a big plastic jug or something?

my biquinhos are not growing quite as well, i think bc they were closer to the cold side of the bedroom until i moved them recently.

hey Handy Folks, can anyone advise me on fixing a piece of a cat tree? 

so uh my partner just wants to throw this part of the cat tree out bc neither of us are sure how to fix this but i feel like it should be fixable????

it looks to me like the plastic part, after being used for a while, has warped and now is kind of a dome instead of being a flat surface like it was supposed to be, slowly making it harder and harder for the treads inside it to actually touch and evenutally leading it to fall right off and not support cats anymore

so... if you were me, how would you proceed?

i was thinking about trying to pry off the black plastic part entirely and see whats underneath or even just using strong adhesive of some kind to glue it back onto its spot, but i'm kind of nervous about that bc my cats are not exactly tiny and they jump HARD on this part sometimes (which is probably why it broke in the first place)

he's an anxious little guy with a lot of triggers implying some serious past trauma, but we love him very much
