Recently I was puttering around under the deck and discovered a forgotten strawberry pot that a girlfriend gave me several years ago. I had been wondering what I would plant mint in, and suddenly I had my answer! I'd been craving some fresh mint to flavor glasses of iced tea. When I add mint I don't need any sweetener in my tea, and I like that. So off I headed to a local nursery in hopes of finding a few mint plants healthier than the scraggly offspring I'd been seeing in the grocery stores.
And I was not disappointed. I got Chocolate Mint.
Spearmint. Do you grow mint? How do you use it? What are your favorites? The only sure advice I've received is "Grow it in pots or it will take over the garden," so that's what I'm doing!
