Catnip in June!

Hard to believe it is almost time to do my first catnip harvest of the season. Where did spring go? Why can’t summer last forever? … Isn’t catnip peach fuzz adorable?

Drug Balcony Garden: Chapter 1

I’m growing a bunch of drugs on my balcony, using very simple gardening practices. The cannabis is getting no special treatment. I love them all equally.

I started everything in coco coir but this is the first time I’ve used it to start seeds and I don’t think the plants loved it. Now everything is in either Pro-mix’s organic herb and vegetable, or flower grow medium.

Catnip is more a cat drug than a human drug but you often see it in sleepy-time teas. Didn’t know morning glories were a drug? Their seeds contain a┬átryptamine (LSA). I absolutely love growing morning glories. I swear I took these photos, went inside and then came back outside after seeing the poppy photo. During that short period of time a morning glory had wrapped itself around something on the balcony. They grow so quickly it always blows me away. Even though they have been part of my life, forever.

I haven’t grown poppies or witnessed the growth of powdery mildew enough to know if my baby poppy is okay? Water droplets on it? Or something growing? Hmm. I’ve started 20 more poppies just in case and have moved the potentially infected plant away from the others.

Listed in order of which they appear: baby morning glory, baby poppy, baby catnip, baby cannabis.

I feel like everyone but the weed plant looks hungry but they all have enough food. So I think I must have damaged their roots while transplanting. Hopefully everyone bounces back soon.

Stay tuned.
