And now it looks like this:
Readers, I beseech you in the name of all that is good and pure in this world: WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY MINT??
I have NO idea about this gardening malarky. Is it a disease? Is it a swarm of invisible aphids or locusts? Is it a Very Hungry Caterpillar??
I took some photos after dark with the flash, in the hopes that the identity of the culprit may be clearer. If you feel so inclined, please click on any of the photos and then click on "All Sizes" to zoom in.
Whatever the evil bastard is, it has also had a go at molesting my basil. Not even my docile innocent little sage was spared!
I currently put nothing on the herbs except water... do I need some sort of pesticide??? PLEASE HELP!
(On the plus side, the parsley and chilli plant seem to have been spared, as has the Vietnamese mint which is getting taller and taller each day.)
