Thursday gardening post


Here's what going on in the garden.

The catnip is growing, so I picked and hung a bunch to dry in the garage (out of the kitties' reach).
 

This is our neighbor's catnip plant--the biggest catnip plant I've seen!
 

The morning glories are in bloom!


I checked my carrots for the first time. These are a special variety for growing in containers, so they are stubby. They tasted great!

Wow, your neighbor's nip plant is amazing! I'm surprised at how potent my nip plant is - my human brought in some fresh cuttings for us to enjoy and days later, after they had dried out, they were still VERY fragrant!

Hmm, apparently I haven't posted a picture lately of my catnip plants in the patio garden. They do seem to just take over the place.

And, drat, I forgot to try planting any morning glories this year. Yours look beautiful, as always.

My cats would KILL to have a nip plant that big! I use the leaves in iced tea--it's delish.
