Burpee, you redeemed yourself yet again, Part 2.
Okay, maybe I got a couple of bad Burpee packets seeds for the first couple of times I tried to grow oregano and mint. I tried to grow them indoors and after a month nothing sprouted, so I gave up. All of the vegetable plants I have out in the garden I grew from seed, so it was so frustrating that I couldn't get the herbs to germinate. But I still wanted to try it again, so I bought the same seeds (I know, I'm a glutton for punishment) and this time I left them on my back porch to try to get them to germinate. I wrote a post about it here. At first there was nothing. Two Weeks went by and I saw one seed germinate in the mint container. Finally, a month later, we're seeing more action in those pots. We got more plants sprouting up. Hallelujah!
