Around my house weeds grow year round. We get different ones in the summer and more of them, but we have a few winter weeds too. Sometimes weeds are tasty treats and I like to go out into my yard and munch. My person doesn’t like it when I do, so I have to try to do it on the sly.
The other day I found a new kind of weed. I tried to eat it but it was a bit stiff and didn’t have much flavor. And it was cold – and frosty.
I think it was a popsicle weed. But I would be really embarrassed sharing this popsicle weed as is, so I need to make some improvements in it. My person says people popsicles have flavors like cherry, or grape, or lemon.
Well those flavors don’t work for me so I thought maybe I’d try peanut butter popsicle weeds, and maybe cheese popsicle weeds. And I could make some chicken flavor and beef flavor popsicle weeds too.
I’m going to get right on this so I can share these new treats with all my friends. I just have one thing to work out before I get started.
Does anybody know how to get frozen peanut butter to stick to a weed?

What about chocolate flavor and beer flavor, Bongo?
February 7, 2012 at 10:56 am
Sweet Kitten, I might have to get you to send over the ingredients for the chocolate and beer flavored popsicle weeds. My person won’t give them to me.
February 7, 2012 at 10:58 am
Or I could come to visit you and give you the ingredients myself 🙂
February 7, 2012 at 11:19 am
Sweet Kitten, come on over. We can make popsicle weeds together.
February 7, 2012 at 10:53 am
That’s a tough one Bongo! Use your ingenuity …OR you can find a way to convince your person to do it for you [less effort too!].

Marina, my person is telling me I have to unfrozen peanut butter on the weeds, refrain from eating it, and leave it overnight. I don’t think I could keep myself from eating it so I still have a problem.
February 7, 2012 at 12:22 pm
Well your idea for popsicle weeds sounds intriguing! Good luck with the peanut butter thing! LOL
February 7, 2012 at 1:10 pm
Bassetmomma, I’ll keep working on it – but I think I might run out of peanut butter before I figure it out.
February 7, 2012 at 1:18 pm
Yum, popsicle weeds! 😉
February 7, 2012 at 2:03 pm
Dianda, they can be really tasty treats.
February 7, 2012 at 4:44 pm
I thought maybe you were going to think about liver popsicle weeds. That could be a tough one. 🙂
February 7, 2012 at 6:41 pm
Brown Dawgs, I’ll have to think on that. Liver popsicle weeds would be good.
February 7, 2012 at 5:05 pm
Bongo I’m like a non-stop eating machine..popsicle weed sounds great! Casey
February 7, 2012 at 6:41 pm
Casey, I’ll send you some when I figure out how to make them.
February 7, 2012 at 6:28 pm
Hmmm….. peanut butter popsicles huh? I did find a recipe for them once….. now I don’t remember. *sigh*
February 7, 2012 at 6:43 pm
Rumpy, maybe we could put our heads together and figure out a good recipe.
February 7, 2012 at 7:26 pm
Maybe you could put the unfrozen peanut butter on the weeds on a day you are going to doggie daycare and when you come home you will have the popsicles.
February 7, 2012 at 8:35 pm
Patricia, that’s a good idea, but I’m not sure the peanut butter would last more than a few seconds after I put it on the weeds – unless my person drags me away from it.
February 7, 2012 at 7:55 pm
I’ve always had a problem with the weed designation since the day my father told me dandelions were weeds. To me, nothing is a weed as long as you think it’s beautiful. Or tasty.
February 7, 2012 at 8:37 pm
Wonderbutt’s person, we have a few things in our yard that my person lets stick around because they have pretty little flowers, but there’s lots of things that are just plain weeds – except of course the ones I like to eat.
February 7, 2012 at 9:43 pm
Personally, you should, on the sly, just eat the PB and get Scratchy to get you some (on the sly) ice cream from the fridge and then mix the weed, ice cream and PB (if any leftover) up in a blender–add some healthy protein powder in case your persons catches you red handed. In that case, when she does, just smile sweetly like you do, and say it’s your own Rambo-licious protein shake. How can she say no to that?? 🙂
February 7, 2012 at 10:39 pm
Sunshine, that sounds like a great idea. Hey Scratchy, can you get some ice cream for me? Never mind, wait until our people are gone. Then we’ll do it.
February 7, 2012 at 11:51 pm
Bongo, once you figure it out, could you send me some? Sounds delicious!
February 8, 2012 at 12:14 am
Henry, I’ll pack some up in ice for you.
February 8, 2012 at 1:34 am
Are you sure you like to eat the peanut butter, Bongo, it sticks in your mouth… but maby not when it’s frozen:)
February 8, 2012 at 10:47 am
Angelswhisper, I don’t think the frozen peanut butter will stick, but I haven’t figured out how to do it yet.
February 8, 2012 at 3:34 am
I love Peanut Butter so when you have sorted out your problem, can you send me one of your popsicles..
I do not have any weeds in my garden as I cannot see the garden it is covered in snow which is very deep
February 8, 2012 at 10:48 am
Patreciau, I will be glad to send you a peanut butter popsicle weed. Could you send me some of your snow? I haven’t had any to play in since early December.
February 8, 2012 at 3:35 am
meant to say …please
February 8, 2012 at 5:22 am
Hahahaha! You make me laugh Bongo! 🙂
February 8, 2012 at 10:49 am
Bassa, it makes my day when I can put a smile on someone’s face. Thanks.
February 8, 2012 at 6:35 am
*drools* woooo….those flavour like peanut, cheese, chicken and beef sounds yummy!!!! Could you share Cheese one with me, Bongo? 🙂
February 8, 2012 at 10:50 am
Kevin, I would love to share a cheese popsicle weed with you.
February 8, 2012 at 10:26 am
Weed… aah, see that in college often 🙂
February 8, 2012 at 10:52 am
7theaven, my person says to stay away from that weed you see in college. I would be glad to share one of my flavored popsicle weeds with you though.
February 8, 2012 at 2:36 pm
Great idea Bongo a popsicle weed, that could be very popular. We do not like peanutbutter but would love a beef, chicken or cheese one. have fun making and eating them.
Lexie & Mica
February 8, 2012 at 2:48 pm
Lexie and Mica, when I get the recipe figured out I’ll send you some of those flavored popsicle weeds.
February 12, 2012 at 7:31 pm
Funny post and ingenious idea. 🙂
