After going to three places, I finally found plain mint. I didn’t realize that you could get peppermint, orange mint, chocolate mint, and candy mint plants, among other types.
I put the mint in its own pot, because I didn’t want it taking over my garden boxes.
I also decided to re-pot my oregano. I’m so glad I did. The soil at the bottom of the pot was compacted clay. I ended up taking a portion of the oregano plant and putting that in a smaller pot full of homemade compost. The plant has been with me a few seasons, and it hasn’t been at its best lately. I hope its new pot, “haircut,” and new soil will help it to get more vitality and hopefully more of an oregano aroma and taste.
