I dried out all my extra mint at the end of the year and tossed it in a couple of big boxes in the back porch over the winter. Mint hay. Mint hay mulch. My garden smells amazing.
Since eggplants are the one thing I can’t do, I picked up eggplants at the coop. They were outside so I think they’re already hardened off, so I just stuck them straight in the garden under a couple of cloches. While I was there, I found an alpine strawberry and picked it up. I put it in a bare spot dug out by a squirrel in between the gooseberries and the rhubarb. Hopefully that wasn’t a bad idea.
I bought replacement asparagus, since only 3 plants seem to have made it. That will give me 6. I’ve no place for the other roots. I might be able to squeeze in one more, but I’ll have to transplant some stuff to do it. Not sure if/when I will. I guess we’ll see if the mood takes me or if I find someone else who wants a few plants.
