Mama says it is bout time to harvest our catnip. Grampster has some, and mama has some, and it is all for us kitties. YUM!!!
This mornin mama went out and started snippety snippin the catnip down. We are stremely spoiled because mama is an overprotective mama (that's what daddy says anyway), and she is fraid we might poke our eyes with the sharp sticks when we get wild, so mama harvests the catnip and snips the leaves off. She throws all the nasty bug eaten and brown leaves and the stems away and only dries the yummy leaves. When the leaves are dry, they go into a nice plastic baggie. Then Gunnie and I can have a catnipshun all winter long. Well, at least we will have catnipshuns all winter long if mama does not forget and leave the baggie where Gunnie can get it. He thinks plastic tastes pretty yummy, so he will just chew the baggie open and steal the catnip. It works out good for me too cuz Gunnie gets in trouble for chewin the bag, but we both get some catnip!
Wow! Thank you for tellin' us what your mom does with the catnip! She has some growin' outside along with herbs this year and did not know what to do with it to get it ready. She noticed we don't seem to care much about it while it's growin' and green, so figured it got dried out somehow. We gots about three weeks to the first freeze, so figures it's safe outside a little longer.
