For my records...


For my records... (mentha)

I bought a few herbs today to replace the finished crop of mange tout outside the greenhouse. This is 'ginger mint'. I love all the gingers...they are the epitome of summer to me, even though they grow like billyo and put roots in to the gravel etc...I still love them!

Isn't it? Very fresh looking. I am hanging around on here hoping to hear that Cal's op has gone well and that he had enough money to pay for it. Can you believe they wouldn't tell him how much it would cost over the phone? I sent him £900. He should get it back from his insurer, but one of his friends said they charge £400 just for a single consultation with a doctor!!!!

Oh my thank goodness for the NHS. Hope it has all gone ok. Was it his bad leg too or the other side just to even things up. lol.

I don't actually know! lol, but last week when we went to Edinburgh I had to take pain killers because of a mysterious pain in my big toe on my left foot. At that time we didn't know anything about his infected toe. Next day, no pain and no reason for the pain either. I shall have to see when he gets in touch if it was the left!

Actually, I'm still praying he will still have both toes at the end of it all!

He will be ok I am sure, try not to worry about him.

Glad to hear your son is ok, Karen :-)

I like ginger mint - such a nice looking plant. I always grow mints in pots, but they don't do as well as in the ground, and need splitting and re-potting every couple of years.

Yes, they do and it's a drag but there's no way you could put them in the ground is there?! They would soon be through all the gardens in the street!

They sure would!
