Here are some details of the garden plants. There were some situations I prayed would not happen, some I expected and others that were a complete surprise.
We will start with some good news. The Catmint (and other mints) are thriving, not even a polar vortex can keep mint down!

The whole row looked as good as these couple of plants. This chives got very thick, like German leek chives, I do not know why. The flowers are not as purple as in past years, more of a pink shade. I took this image and promptly cut off all the flowers for vinegar!

In posting these photos I noticed something I did not while I was taking the pictures. There are a lot of weeds in there. I need to get to work!
