Hi- I'm hones93 and I'm new here!

My friend bought me some herbs to plant and grow at home but I don't know what they are! Can anyone help me identify these? I think No. 6 is a strawberry plant. And I think No. 3 is white borage. I got told that one of them might be mint plant?

Here's my best guess:
1. Some sort of greens mix - could be lettuce, mustard, or other mixed greens
2. Mint - crush and see if it is minty smelling
3. Borage, this will get large
4. Garlic?
5. No clue
6. Strawberry
7. No clue, looks familiar but I can't immediately place it.

Since they are all supposedly herbs, nibble on the leaves to help you ID them.

Hi @hones93
I think 5 might be a pea plant, and 7 could be a bean of some kind. Give both of them some sticks to support them, and wait for flowers!
