12-pack Mini Greenhouses + Jerusalem Sage + Peppermint-scented Geranium

I woke up late again and drove to work… so after work, I went back to Big Lots and got me some more 12-pack Mini Greenhouses.

By the time I was driving home, the sun was setting and the sky was beautiful, so drove back to Sandpiper Point to see if I can take a photo of the sunset, but I was about 5 minutes too late. (I haven’t gone back there since the pit-bull incident.)

I went to see if I could spot the Jerusalem Sage I wanted… I found it and took a couple of sprigs of it to try to root. I hope they take.

In other news… I’ve been asking people on Dave’s Garden for help identifying some of my unknown plant photos. One that I was please to learn was a Peppermint-scented Geranium from Filbert Steps. Now I totally want to see if they do smell like Peppermint. I also want to ask the owner if I could have some cuttings.

  • I’ve had no difficulty rooting common culinary sage, directly in the soil, in the summer. Perhaps Jerusalem sage will be equally obliging.

    • I hope they are. I cut them up this morning (Saturday) and potted them up, then covered with a bottomless water bottle. I was going to post photos, but I’m too tired to plug the camera in my computer… maybe tomorrow…

  • I bought some mini-greenhouses at Big Lots, too! YAY!
    I don’t think I’ve ever seen Jerusalem Sage before. I think I’ll look for it today.

    P.S. I bought a black pepper-scented geranium recently, and it smells so good!

    • YEAY!!!! Did you go there because of my journal entry? If so, I’m glad I was able to tip you off… :)

      • Well, no.. sorry… I actually bought them back in late March. I should’ve mentioned them in my journal back then. Big Lots comes in quite handy for a lot of things in the garden.

        • …and you didn’t tell me!!!! hehe… just kidding… I feel like getting more again… I just love the size and the plastic cover.

          • lol! I didn’t even think to mention it. I do like them better than about any I’ve used.
