    Can someone help me identify what kind of mint this is?

    Def no telling for sure what type of mint it is. Why not just take a leaf and go back in the place and try to identify it. Seems like the best way to go about it.

    Seeds sent to me opened by postman??

    This isn't the first time that I have had some veggie seeds sent to me in the mail only to have them opened, usually at the corner. Is this done on purpose by the postman? Maybe he wants some seeds too? Anyone else have this happen to them?

    Does it matter when you harvest your herbs?

    I have a few different herbs I am looking forward to harvesting and drying so I can get a head start. There are Bonnie transplants that have been planted in pots few weeks ago. Does it matter when I harvest these for drying?

    adding compost

    I would be curious to see what you have grown in clay. I tried for many years and it never worked for me and I would not suggest doing so without adding compost and other soil enhancers.

    Will worms survive in container garden?

    I found some free worms in my yard and put them in my containers. I put some pieces of scrap paper on top of the soil and buried some down in the soil. Will they survive? And can they climb out and flee? :cry:

    What kind of worms for worm bin?

    Will earthworms work fine for a worm bin? Or do I have to buy the red wigglers? I just want to get some worms from my yard - which are free - to put in the bin. Any suggestions or ideas?

    Egg Shells And Coffee Grounds

    Put the eggshells in a blender and create a powder to spread in garden. Great for tomatoes because it provides calcium.
