We never use mint.
Before the herbs were scorched, I'd say we got our money's worth of spicing from them.
So, this year ... we are moving on to bigger and better things.
Of course, when I say we, I mean Mark. My role in this year's gardening adventure has been minimal at best.
Through a series of gardening conversations at seminary, Mark has gotten some exciting ideas planted in his brain. (Did you see what I did there with the verb "planted"?) Turns out future pastors love to garden. Let's hope they have lots of furtile soil to sow in, am I right?
Here's what Mark is attempting this summer.
Please don't judge his store bought plants. He is a full-time student and pastoral intern and dad and husband! This man does not have time for seeds. Maybe next year?
He laid old baby sheets before pouring the soil to protect from weeds and has been watering a whole lot. He is expecting to begin harvesting mid-June, I believe. Harvesting is the proper term, right?
Hey, I'm all for it. Minimal work on my part. A little lost money if it flops. Fresh fruits and veggies if it succeeds.
Win / Slight Loss / Win.
Go for it, Mark!
If something grows, I'll be sure to post a picture. If nothing grows, let's all agree to pretend like this post never happened.
You got that?
Lesson Learned: Turns out we haven't learned out gardening lesson quite yet, and we are (Mark is) at it again. If at first you don't succeed, try, try, again?
