lol My little cat thyme plant did not survive. When I said my cats ate it to the nub, I was not exaggerating. It was nicely grown in a 4" pot when I brought it home. If anyone has a few more seeds to spare, I'm going to put it on my wish list. Slow learner, I guess. Shrug!

I suppose that I'm more careful than most farmers... I grow just about all of my own seed, and I grow enough to last for a decade. And I don't use any fertilizers or poisons, and I divide my seed among different storage locations in different counties and states, so that if I loose one I might still have a backup.

I was going to try and keep my list open until the end but something has come up and I will be closing Sunday, Dec. 7 at 5 p.m. EST.

I don't have a whole lot left anyway, there were some mighty hungry piggies! Hilarious!

oops -- Erica, just re-read your post and I see you are LOOKING for cat thyme (I had originally thought you had that and were looking for catnip...) Sorry, I have catnip... *Blush*

And, like Star, I've never heard of cat thyme either... so if anyone would care to enlighten us... Confused

I've been packaging my seeds tonight to try to be ready to get them in the mail pretty soon. I opened my stash of milkweed and have silky parachutes all over the dining room! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! Somehow I thought I'd be quick enough to and stealthy enough to contain them, but no such luck.

Never hear of cat thyme. The late Bella the cat didn't like cat nip or cat mint, but she LOVED valerian.

I am finally picking up the craigslist dresser/vanity that I found before Thanksgiving tomorrow morning. It will be nice to get things more organized. it is a pretty piece that will coordinate with the mid century walnut dresser I am refinishing.

I have been fiddling with computers again. I shut down and couldn't restart this morning. I got that fixed today and the new to me one is installing windows. major relief. I am looking forward to getting the spare parts boxed up and given away/hidden away.

Ella I am glad that you mentioned soilsandup. I missed her this swap, I hope she is feeling well. I am a major fan of her amazing green beans. I am looking forward to growing them again this year.

Are there any other survivors?

Andi, that is funny about your Bella not caring for catnip... my SIL's cat doesn't, either; mine, on the other hand, go pretty crazy for it!

I'm pretty sure Ella said ther weren't any "survivors" this year....

I wanted to be sure that I didn't miss any survivors. I guess we all survived 2104. Not the best year for gardens, at least in the northeast.

I am still trying to rescue kittens living under Barefoot Joe's shed. They are eating the food I give them. The mama cat howled in my backyard today. I wonder if she was telling me the bowl was empty? I make sure I handle the bowl and the food so they get used to my scent. I hate to see animals starving a freezing.

I have parachutes of milkweed here also. I forgot that I had some pods drying on plates on top of a bookcase. The pods are dry and spilling seeds. These may have gotten mixed while drying, so I took the lot of them outside and let them fly in the woods behind my place. I had enough from earlier collections for the piggies and more.

Weedwhacker -- Ah, bummer about the cat thyme, but no problem.

Patrob -- I have a "Wanted" posting up for it on GW. If I end up getting some, I'll share with you.

PlantSister is putting some seed packs together for some of the thinner piggys; she sent me a list.

This is a photo of our neighborhood cat; I call her the 'Deck Cat', but what is that plant she like to sleep near? Could be some Thyme. Rolling on the floor laughing
