Mint overload

My mum gave her mint plants a radical haircut, and presented me with half a black garbage bag of mint stems!  Waste not, want not, so I have made (or am in the process of making):

Mint syrup (part 1), mint jelly  (9 jars)
 Dried mint (10 trays worth!) and about a litre of mint sauce

I guess it is lucky there is plenty of lamb in the freezer!

They grow up so quickly

October 30th - first day out of the nest, still in the same tree

November 2nd - out and about with mum and dad
