Mystery Plant Identified: Catnip

I found something coming up in the front yard gardens that clearly looked like it was in the mint family. The only such thing I’ve planted out there was lemon balm, and this plant definitely didn’t smell like lemon balm. It did have a strong, familiar smell though. I just couldn’t place it. I decided to transplanted it back by the coop to help repel bugs.

The neighbor’s cat has helped me identify it as catnip! Of course. And she’s been coming by every day to roll around on it.
