GROWING MINT

day 115.

After mentioning mint from the garden...
we feel obligated to share a cautionary tale. 

We love mint. 
We've grown it in our gardens for years. 
But, mint growth is hard to control. 

At Ang's house, years ago she planted a sweet little mint plant in a rarely used corner of her yard. She also keeps it growing in a pot on her back porch. It grows nearly year around and smells lovely when coming through the back door everyday. It's kept trimmed and used often.
BUT, the sweet little plant in the corner of the yard has grown into a monster.
A MINT JUNGLE.
 Just so you truly understand the situation,
Yes, the mint has grown completely through the stairs.

So, unless you plan to tend your mint garden,
opt for a pot rather than a plot.
