Plant Rescue!

My radishes seem to be dead – massive aphid attack – so I needed something to put in the three smallish pots on the very sunny windowsill above the stairwell. Today, almost accidentally, I found something.

For the bargain price of 10p – 10p! – I got 4 chive seedlings. And for an extra 10p I got 4 mint seedlings. They were reduced from £1.50 because they were starting to look a bit ill, and they were past their ‘sell-by’ date. Well, I’m pretty confident I can get at least three-quarters of them to full size. The only question will be what to do with them then – I’m not sure I need that much mint.
