MyPoWriYe #42 - Mint

Invasive?  Me?

Last week's featured edible plant was the dandelion.  This week it's mint!

You can find a very simple recipe for mint tea at Your Cup of Tea.  Sometimes we just take whole mint stalks and stuff them into a teapot.  Pour in hot water, add sugar, and yum!

Mint in gardens is both friend and enemy, much like an Amish Friendship Bread starter.  If you've ever received one of those baggies, you know what I mean.

  1. Oregano must be a member of the mint family. I let my bush go to seed and now we smell pizza when we mow the back yard!

  2. That is just plain funny! Want some mint for mowing-dessert?
