gardening for the mums
three-tine cultivator, [...i always called them you know that garden thing that you always buy with a trowel with the three teeth and the spikes and the digging action] we ripped out 90% of the mint. there are still some runners in the gravel, but 2/3 of a yard bag later, i salvaged some roots and replanted them in buried pots. no more escaping!
i also added some herbs, a couple bok choys, and some tomatoes in a pot that can be moved onto the porch when they get to be deer-bait sized. since i pretty much go crazy and buy all the things at gardening places.. it was good my dad was there to help carry and pay. i added the top left plant at the bottom to the garden as well - stonecrop dragon's blood. not only does it have the most friggin epic name in the land, but it looks sort of like a succulent with much less needy care and treatment.
