Just indulge me a little.  Yes, it's mint and I know it has a reputation for being easy to grow but I haven't grown it before, so I'm quite chuffed with my small pot of success! 

We visited our niece and family on Christmas eve.  She gave me some herbs from her garden so I could make them into tea.  I used most and put a sprig of mint aside for later. 

It was sitting in a small glass of water and when I checked it a few days later, it had sprouted!  I gave it a few more days in the water glass, then transferred it to a pot of very soggy potting mix and it seems to be enjoying the new surroundings. 

Can you tell I'm  rather proud of my achieve-mint?!

    1. It gets better, Nammo! I used the potting mix from my "failed" newspaper pots and I now have a bonus seedling beside the mint!
