Giant Outdoor Litterbox

This is how to make a giant outdoor litterbox outside of your house. (making a giant outdoor litterbox inside your house may prove more difficult)


First: choose a location.

Second: make a border using something. I used the natural rocks found nearby on top of the area.

Third: add soil. If you add regular dirt or cat litter, that’s okay … because it will become soiled eventually.

And that’s about it.

I guess cats will probably get involved at some point, but you don’t need any of your own.
To bastardize  a line from Shoeless Joe by W. P. Kinsella:

If you build it, they will come.


note: I put flowers in my giant outdoor litterbox while I wait for those cats.

double note: a big thank you to Mr. Pettit  for suggesting this rental property improvement … eventhough he didn’t do any of the work!
… why do I feel like “The Little Red Hen“?


Today #197

I was more outvolved in today than involved.

Genetic Challenges

Just when you think you’ve got all your genetic coding figured out and you think you know who you are … something like “time release DNA” or “retro-chromosomes” kick in and you find yourself … gardening!!!like your mother!!!

the garden

Not as well as your mother, but there is still time.

the garden from a different angle

I turned a blind eye when one brother started canning vegetables … from his garden.

I turned another blind eye when another brother had a dreamy look in his eye while bragging about the free soil he scored from a local mushroom farm.

My sisters? … well … they don’t brag about their gardening exploits like my brothers do. 

I’ve run out of blind eyes and can only give myself a squinty look in the mirror when facing the fact that I’m on the slippery slope to enjoying gardening.

the garden and big patch of grass!

My mother would be proud … but critical … and probably trying to plant raspberries.


note: in case you’ve never seen where I live, here’s a photo of the rental plantation.

planetross is enclosed inside usually, but not now because I'm taking the photo!


double note: I don’t know how the van … or cool BBQ got into this photo … honest!

 triple note: my next door neighbour is tutoring me in the ways of the garden … and composting.

quadruple note: it’s another night of 2 posts!  It must be the weekend … but I always think of it as the strong end.
