Here is Secret Pride. (NOT - it's Vanilla Cupcake) I got this one from Mamajack's coop. Anyone else grow this? I got it to go with Milkshake since I didn't see any of those.

Here is Milkshake for comparison which is having a rough year. It has been overcome by the surrounding plants and it has some mites too.

That's pretty. This year mamajack plug? I've all but given up on mine.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

I guess I can't edit the title of the thread!
And yes Lee, from this year's coop.

I just checked my co-op plants and they're alive but barely.

Well, I can't say mine are large enough that they are going to overwinter at this point. They don't have full sized leaves. I'm going to have to do something about that. I think I will build a raised bed for these plugs to gain some size. I have access to some compost. Sometimes plants just don't take off in pots but once they are in real soil, they go.

I tried to baby mine by starting in 3"pots but it now looks like a bad idea. Lesson learned. No more plugs. Expensive lesson too.

I won't disagree with you. Sometimes they work out great and sometimes they don't. The full sized plants can have their own set of problems too. I kill a lot of plants!
May I suggest you try moving them to quart pots that are taller than wide with some compost added if you have access to some? I would only keep a plant in that small a pot if it were a new seedling or cutting or maybe if I was dealing with a plant with root rot.
