I have an earth friendly post for you today… I’ve started my summer 2011 container gardening adventure!
Last year, I successfully grew (and blogged about) a couple of tomatoes, some basil, a green bell pepper, and a chocolate mint plant. I also
semi-unsuccessfully grew cilantro and strawberries. This year I’m sticking to what I know works: a mint herb pot with several varieties of mint, a green bell pepper plant, and basil. Also, is it highly likely I will be moving to Richmond in August given I wasn’t matched to an internship, my current job is 45 minutes away, and gas is super crazy expensive now. I think moving three potted plants is enough, but who knows, the farmers market is Saturday and I might just bring home something new to experiment with.
The Mint Pot: can you tell the different varieties?
Orange Mint: This one is new for me. Fragrant, smells like citrus. I plan on adding it to fruit salad, I can’t wait !
Apple Mint: This is a new variety for me too. The leaves are soft and fuzzy. I hope to make tea with this one!
I’m growing ONE MORE variety of mint, can you guess what it is? It’s the tall one in the center of the pot…
