There is a lot to go over so I will do so one plant type at a time. Here is the progress of the sage after being transplanted to coffee can. Initial growth was very fast with large leaves. I was snipping leaves for tasty pasta dishes and enjoying their scent whenever I watered the plant. Overall the plant seemed bushy and compact, signs of health according to my gardening book. However, when the weather turned chilly the leaves started staying small, although there were many new leaves forming still. I'm not sure if it is the weather or something else. So far, there are no signs that it may be bolting or dying so I think it may live through the winter.
