LOL, more like several small (18"' tall) plants. We had to cull the herd, as
they were taking over the herb garden. They were on the way to the yard
waste bin, when I decided to freak Cali out. The 'Nip patch is actually got
a late start this year, as we pulled out too many last year.

Surprisingly Cali actually ignored the plants at first. But once I assured
her it was OK, she was right into it.

Where do you live? We've never had good luck with catnip, but we haven't
tried it in the ground. It always gets smooshed up by the feral cat that
hunts in our back yard.

I'm in southern Ontario. I'm surprised we don't get more cat traffic in the
'Nip patch, but we rarely get any visitors. Although we did have one cat
that used to dig it out of the snow.

I'm just north of you up here in Oklahoma. I planted some nip a couple
years ago to see if my crew would react to home grown, but they're
just not interested. I have it in a couple flowerpots and it comes
back every year now. Don't think the neighborhood cats react to it
either, since no one ever bothers it (well, except for me, as I have
to watch it to keep it from spreading from the pots into the flower
garden).

Cali loves her fresh Nip, she always looks for it when we come in the back
door. If we forget her daily dose she meows at us. Smokey is missing the Nip
gene and is only interested because Cali likes it.

I have never tried growing catnip, but I know that it is a member of
the mint family, and they are all known for being invasive. I am
currently fighting another invasive plant, having made the mistake of
planting English ivy in my foundation planting a few years ago. It is
now trying to take over the house.

Catnip grows wild out behind the house I grew up in. The cats just
look at you funny when you try to offer it up.
'So what? It's all over out there, you see?'

They just don't care.

I thought cats liked catnip better after it had dried and aged a little
more! Pretty cute pic, Victor.
