A couple of weeks back I had a few different cuttings of plants, plus bits and pieces like carrot tops from the kitchen and pumpkin seeds.

So I put them to good use and have since planted most of them out into the garden now that the winter rains seem to have arrived.

The mint cuttings were placed in a jar of rainwater with a dash of hydrogen peroxide which I find really kicks things off. Most of them are planted out in pots scattered around the garden.

The carrot tops also loved a bit of peroxide and I applied this as a spray mixed with rainwater also and used a small spray bottle to give them a little shower each day. They are well underway in the garden and although will not provide an initial harvest, will assist in attracting some handy insects into the garden come spring and hopefully provide an abundance of carrot seeds for the garden next year.
