I may not top dress it for awhile, Right now the potting soil is still a more hummus consistency and really hasn't compacted yet. Which is good because the Bay has loads of loose dirt to stretch its roots out in, with little resistance. Want to get as much root growth as possible this growing year. I would be really happy if it didn't grow any taller and concentrated roots.
ROFLMAO ...... I came to post an update and found the above just sitting here. I mean how hard can it be to just hit the enter button. I am sorry Brian!
So lets look at when I first planted it.
So here is the plant after 8 months, I am sort of unimpressed by its growth.
Betting Brian just snarfed his coffee! ROFLMAO!!!
So here is the photo I really just took. I have been robing leaves to cook with already!
I am thinking the three predominate stalks might get a braid someday........ BUT!
I am seeing all this new tender growth and I hate croping back good excited growth. I know I need to, but its just so happy to be here.
BTW with the exception of the drought last summer for 2 months, I have done nothing to the plant, no water, no food, not even any talking to! Look at the suckers sprouting up!
Oh well its an update....... We have yet to see a freeze again this year. The bugs are going to take over again!
WOW learned something cool about peppermint, but will start another post.
