Catnip

22 Aug

Catnip before the first cutting

The small lavender catnip blooms are a big attraction for bees.  As I understand from a friend, it also attracts cats to the garden.  I have seen one stray cat so far.  My office assistants (Shelby and Eve) are offered the dried catnip.

Cat nip gift bags

I decided to prepare gift bags to share my first harvest with friends with cats.

Cat nip infusion jar

This infusion jar idea came from my friend Julie.  The purpose is to refresh cat toys (often prepared with catnip scent).  The toys gradually lose their scent and cats lose interest.  The infusion jar works!  Happy office assistants 🙂
