Propagating Mint

     No I did not fall off the face of the Earth or get trampled by a cow.  I promise that I'm still here although frustrated and exhausted.  I had to give my mind a break from that crazy cow and needed a simpler, less demanding project.

     Some friends came out to the house and brought some mint cuttings for us.  I absolutely love mint.  It takes me back to my childhood when my mom would send me out get some mint for her tea.  Ahhh, memories. 

     Since I had to leave behind all of my herbs when we moved, I thought that I might try my hand at propagating some from these lovely cuttings.

Everything that I read in my books say that it's pretty easy.  Cut the stems at an angle and place in water.  After a few days roots should start to grow.  We shall see.  If it works I've got a new mint plant to grace my counter this winter.  Until then, I can't stop myself from sniffing it every time I walk by.
