Plant Starts from Dr. Kong

One of my attendings gave me some plant starts — rooted cutting, and small seedlings. Her mother (who is in her 80s) does a lot of gardening. She plants everything from seed and always has a lot of extra seedlings.

She gave me rooted cuttings of pineapple sage, as well as seedlings of basil, mint, and a couple of small eggplant.

I planted the pineapple sage in a bed at the edge of the yard amongst other types of salvia.

The one of the left is doing well, but the one of the right looks pretty dead a few days after planting.

The eggplant is supposedly a Green Apple eggplant. I’ve never heard of this, but I’m excited to see if it will grow well here. She says it grows well in containers.

I planted it where the parsley had been planted but didn’t come up.

It’s always fun to get free plants!
