Early March Catnip Interlude

In 2021, we planted catnip. We learned it had insect-repelling properties and held a catnip distilling workshop.

A few months and feet of snow later, we all need a charge. That’s also part of catnip’s potential. Have a look.

Look at all this catnip! Who could possibly want it?
Salem checks it out.
A tentative taste.
Himself approves! Enjoy, buddy.
