The Mojito Mint is Alive!

April 24, 2008

I wasn’t sure if the Mojito Mint that I bought from Richter’s Herbs last year would come back despite it being a perennial herb that is hardy in Canadian zones 5 – 9. I had potted it up in a 1 gallon, weed barrier-lined pot and dug it into my vegetable garden to overwinter. Once all the snow had melted off the garden, I started to take pictures. Here it is on April 11:

Not too bad – there are a few green leaves there.

On April 17th:

It’s coming along and has a few more sprigs.

On April 20th:

And here it is as of yesterday:

It looks like it’s going to make a triumphant return and I’m looking forward to harvesting the sprigs to make delicious Mojitos this summer.

    Plants like that restore your faith in Nature’s ability to come back from one extreme winter! 🙂
