Mint

Taking a break from all the spring cleaning to share my little mint plant with you. My sister brought over a mint sprig from her garden a couple of weeks ago so I could grow some of my own. It started with one little stalk cut from a bigger plant... it doesn't have to be dug up or have any root on it... just a little stalk with some leaves, just the kind you would buy at the grocery store where the other fresh herbs, like basil, are sold. We placed it in a cup of water for about a week.

And voile! Little roots started growing out of the bottom and sides.


I planted it this morning in a small vase until I can move it to a bigger spot. Easy easy easy! I'm thinking fresh herbal ice teas for this summer....
