We couldn't find a bag of cut mint in the supermarket, so Jamie got a growing plant instead. Ever since, it has been sat in the kitchen on the windowsill looking a bit sad because I keep forgetting to water it.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I decided I wanted to plant it, so that next time I wanted Pimms I would have mint on hand. This reminded me that I had a few very well established herbs in the garden in the last house, and it was a shame we didn't have that here. So earlier on in the week, when I was rushing about doing a variety of home related chores, I popped to Homebase and picked up some more herbs.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-KNsc660sIJA/UcISUOzMXlI/AAAAAAAABdQ/lPCaaMYam-Q/s1600/Winnersh.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-KNsc660sIJA/UcISUOzMXlI/AAAAAAAABdQ/lPCaaMYam-Q/s640/Winnersh.jpg" width="640" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">Sage, Rosemary, Thyme, Basil and the supermarket Mint</td></tr></tbody></table><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I tried to find plants that were already looking pretty healthy, as I have a bad track record for killing off herbs.
