Mint Mentha spicata
GrowingPlanting is still growing today
Date approximate. Planted in a container on a north-facing balcony.
After an OMG-too-much mint experience, we resisted growing it for years, but finally gave in. We do our best to neglect it, and it still grows like a weed.
2015-01-25: Took a few cuttings in the hopes of planting one in a smaller pot and then retiring the original larger plant.
2015-05-16: Finally got cuttings that are doing well. Working on retiring the mint as fast as we can eat it.
