Here I am on the back patio, and it’s a really humid day! That almost never happens here in southern California. In fact, it has been pretty dry for a long time. But we had rain over the weekend and something called “monsoonal moisture.” I am here to see what effect it has had on my catnip garden.
Wow, look at this! So lush and green, and this year the bugs haven’t chewed on the leaves. At least not yet.
Of course, I have to go through the garden myself and get my paws dirty! And maybe have a few whiffs while I’m at it.
But there is still more work to be done if I want my catnip to really thrive. I am having my human pinch off some of the stems so the plants don’t get too leggy, and so that they fill out.
And maybe snag a few buds too.
