Strangely, I can not seem to find any catnip.

  • Not at my house.

    Wild catnip is doing well-even the cicadas like it!

  • My catnip is doing great. It's actually needing to be cut back ... it's shading out everything around it. How many cats do you have now, Steve?

  • Hmmm, if the catnip were being tended to, I would think I did something wrong but in this case, I am puzzled.

    14 cats. One was intentional, the others were drop offs or multiplied before we could correct the situation.

    We have one female who needs a trip to the vet. Last time we were told by a "relief vet" that she was not pregnant. After three kittens appeared we knew otherwise.

    The three kittens are so elusive that we do not know what we have there yet.

  • Nope, no catnip. It was obviously caused by something so I am now on a crusade to figure it out.

    Of course, our cats are not pleased and could care less about my research, but I will correct that shortly.

  • my spearmint is not coming up at all.

  • I thought spearmint was the same as other mints. Once you plant it, you have to control it. I am developing a theory about what happened and maybe it affects Spearmint as well.

    I am thinking that it really has not disappeared. The catnip comes up pretty early in the season and spearmint may do the same. It might have been coming on about the time of a sudden and hard freeze.

    The result was they were burned back and had to start all over again. Some weak plants may have died but other, more established ones will come back from their developed roots.

    This theory is built on the fact that we FOUND SOME CATNIP! Or actually, one of our cats brought it to Debbi's attention.

    It was a tiny little plant and Kit-Kat grabbed a piece and ran when Debbi went over to look what he was doing. Now we have found another, growing inside an apple mint.

    So maybe IT'S BACK!
