So if you’re on metafilter and a local you know what I’m talking about- if not this might be a slightly confusing post.
I’m hosting a meet-up where I can hopefully offload some of the cuttings and seedlings I’ve been growing so I don’t have to compost viable plants.
This includes the 4 lipstick peppers that I didn’t plant, oodles of mint, and some other assorted veggies and herbs.
No telling who will survive until next week of course, transplanting is dangerous.
I went a little overboard in the dwarf sunflower department, but they’re a good plant for a balcony pot. I also have some borage, which is my new favorite herb, along with more mint, and a few squash plants because why not.
Some of the root systems were really encouraging though. This romaine looks like a real trooper.
Some of the larger mint plants roots were frankly a little scary. Look at those runners developing under the root ball! I put this one into a gallon pot- I suspect whoever gets this one will have to move it to something bigger within a month or so.
Here are my giant mints, an assortment of ginger mint, pineapple mint and one each of apple mint and a mystery mint.
What is the mint?
No seriously I can’t remember what it is.
Now I just have to figure out how to get these plants to the restaurant. Ah logistics, my eternal nemesis.
See some of you there!
