Zombie Mint: IT’S ALIVE!

Zombie Mint 2

Before I left for the west coast, I conducted a wee experiment with a decaying mint sprig in a pot of dead cilantro.  To recap, I took a sprig of mint that had spent a week in a jug of water in my fridge and jammed it in the soil.  I took a fresh sprig of mint and did the same.

My suppositions were that the decaying sprig was displaying new growth, while the freshly cut sprig probably wouldn’t survive.

When I came back, this is what I found.  You can see that the fresh sprig is in its death throes, but the zombie sprig?

Check out that new growth!

Who knew that freezing something a few times makes it grow?

  1. lol. To my knowledge you can’t kill mint. Trust me, I’ve tried. I am not the only one with a garden infested with the darn stuff. I’m going to dig some up and put it into a pot, then take a roofer’s propane torch to the rest in yet another desperate attack. Wish me luck. And don’t turn your back on yours 🙂
