Veggie Cats & Nepeta Cataria
This has to be one of the best ever names for an herb. It contains both "pet" and "cat" in it. Cute.

Organic tomatoes
Tomatoes are the #1 best thing to grow. Then bell peppers and basil.

Oh, and nepeta cataria for the cat pack.
Real tomato cages
A 50' roll of 6" concrete reinforcing wire will make about 7 cages:

Diameter of 25 gallon pot = 24" = 2'

Circumference = ∏ X 2" = 6'

Loss = 6" per cage cut & fold over wire to make circle

Therefore each cage requires = 6' 6" wire.

I made all 7-cages from one 50' roll of wire.

Waiting
Cougar and Raccoony waited for the catnip. They knew that Verne would give them some after he picked his veggies.
Caged Catnip
Once I didn't cage catnip and found a pack of cats had destroyed the bush. They were lying around like students drunk at a beer bash. It looked like a saloon.

So always grow catnip in a protective cage.
Flowering catnip
I pick off the flowers to keep the plants from seeding. That makes them continue to grow all season.
 

 A SOCIAL LUBRICANT
"Hey Cougar...uh...can I have the catnip Verne just dumped on your back?"
Cougar weighs 14 pounds.
Little Raccoony is forever smallest; don't know what she weighs.
