This Is Mint, Right?

It looks like two different things based on the baby ones, but I swear the tiny ones came from a mint packet (they’re at least sprouting where I put the mint packet seeds, I will not say correlation is causation) and the big stuff smells like mint.  Point is, is this going to end badly?

Here’s what has been growing in the pot, along with some new shoots:


And here are the new shoots on the other side of the pot that might be from the mint seeds I planted a couple weeks ago:

maybe mint

I don’t know what to think.

The basil is doing well, so I’ll hold on to that.

    The top picture looks like mint.

    The top photo is definitely of mint. You’re just going to have to wait and see if those tiny seedlings are mint or something else. Mint grows very quickly and spreads, so what you have already is going to take over that pot pretty quickly.

    The tiny seedlings I can’t identify are coming up really slowly. Maybe they migrated from another pot? But I don’t have anything that looks like that nearby.

    Yeah, the suspense…

    Seeds can come from the air, bird droppings, or even be sitting in wait in your newly purchased potting soil. Did they ever turn into anything you could recognize?

    I think they all died, actually. Weird end to a questionable existence.

    Just got back from my folks with some new plants, though, so a decent garden update soon!
