Good Monday, Everyone.  Hope you had a pleasant weekend.  Ours was cool and sunny.  They say some areas had thundershowers--brief and light.  We heard a couple of thunderclaps but no rain.  I got three trays of spearmint and two each of orange mint and peppermint.  I threw the root balls of the spearmint out because, like last year, they were so tightly bound in roots that getting any soil out was too much of a chore.  So far the cuttings are still standing up.  I have hopes they will produce daughter plants for next season.  I need to get the oregano cut.  I also should to take cuttings from the patchouli, sage, pineapple sage, lavender, and thyme for new plants.  These are all good plants, my books say, for propagating by cutting.

I love James Kunstler's posts on clusterfucknaition.  Today's curmudgeon's rant is worth of prolonged applause.  Consider it given.
