Lookie Ma!!!! I got BLOSSOMS! Now, none are mint (LOL) but this is even more exciting (I just found them maybe half an hour ago). All three are the plants I bought at Lowe's as my "cheaters" but they survived the hard frost two nights ago and more than two weeks in my possession, so I am chalking this up in the WIN column, especially given previous history.
Roma sauce tomato blossoms
Big Bonnie (TM?) slicing tomato blossom
Ozark Beauty (everbearing?) STRAWBERRY blossom!!
Now I have a real plant to match my little cross-stitch strawberry-and-blossom motif I did over the winter! I use the pic of the motif on a couple of sites as my avatar because I love strawberries and think the pic and motif both turned out so pretty. Even better - I think a couple of the stems-with-roots strawberries are showing some life from the ten-pack I got from Tractor Supply.
