Mint

Last week, we dried mint to use for tea this winter. The mint family has many members, such as oregano and catnip. There are many different flavors of mint. Some of the flavors are chocolate mint, apple mint, pineapple mint and spearmint. We grow spearmint and apple mint. Mint is very invasive, so having something to do with it helps. When we trimmed back our mint, we dried the trimmings. Jane, at Seeds to Sew, had a great idea for mint. She used their extra mint for refreshing cool mint towels. With the increasing heat here in the valley, staying cool is a job! Do you grow mint? If so, what kind do you grow?
