Realization Of The Day:
Somebody may have to take my scissors away from me.
But I've been getting so much done with them. First there was the Greek Oregano. Then the Arkansas Traveler tomato plants. And look at this:

I think the mint is very happy. In fact, it'll probably take off and be at least that height again before winter. It's mint!
Okay, so after I finished chopping down the mint, I saw some chunks of fur that were all tangled up with burrs on Lucky Buddy Bear so I cut them off. (It'll grow back. And he only looks scary from a few very specific angles.) Then I found a couple of those big, nasty burrs stuck way into the wool on Cary's side and took care of them. (Hey, sheep have a different kind of skin than we do--technically it wasn't even bleeding.)
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm sure there's something around here that desperately needs to be cut off.
