The Great Mint Repotting Caper
These two pots of mint show retarded growth
due to lack of soil space. Both were planted last spring and should have
been repotted earlier this year. Shown here in early summer, these plants
are no longer productive. Had they been repotted in March, they would now
be contributing copious amounts of mint for our culinary pleasure.
