The weather has been pretty crazy so far this spring. The storm last night produced 70 mph winds and downed a few pine tree branches in our yard. The herb plants are all fine...but a few hostas were damaged.
Hopefully tonight will be the last real freeze warning for the season. We have used the red warmer lamp way more than we planned. It did come in very handy. Now that the tunnel is getting full of plants we may have find other methods to keep the babies warm.
It's been a while for Herb of the Week. We have been very busy this spring keeping the little plants happy and healthy. So, without further ado, this weeks herb is a favorite of our feline companions. You guessed it... Catnip! Kitties of the world unite! Have your people plant you some catnip ASAP. Catnip is an easy perennial to grow in sunny areas with moderate soils. The plant attracts benefical insects to your garden...and possibly even the neighbors cat:)
