i planted a small pot of catnip in the garden last year, back by the herbs. did you know that it's a perennial? it was the first thing to come back this year and it's huge! we cut it all down at the beginning of the month::
we bundled it up and hung it to dry in the attic::
a half gallon jar of homegrown catnip. i will have to hide this from indy and ellie. they love to sprinkle it everywhere and watch the results. luma will indulge but sometimes walks right by. mako, on the other hand, is a different story. she was gnawing on the stems while i was picking and shredding. we may have some feline substance abuse issues soon if i'm not careful.
