Default Bumper crop and it's not done yet.

My catnip plant is going to seed as we speak. So slowly I am trimming it back for hibernation. So this means I have more catnip than I need.

Here is just a small portion I cleaned up today.

I know what it looks like, I can ASSURE you it is catnip.

I have catnip in my perennial border and just let it go to seed every year.

I have one in a half wine barrel, which btw is the parent of the beast at the end of the sidewalk. I am going to mix some of the seeds with some wildflowers. It's going to be about a 6 foot circle filled with flowers so I can see them out my sewing room window.

I am assuming that it grew and grew because it wanted to make fun of you with that "wimpy" little trellis in the middle. LOL

We put the trellis in after it grew. We had some rain a while back and almost flattened it out. I trimmed off the bottom branches cause the dogs kept bending and breaking them.

Neither did we, we were fortunate to get a lot of rain early summer and late spring. The parent plant has purple flowers this one has white ones.

I used to dry mine, make cat toys (simple fish shapes) out of bright fabric.
