A couple years ago I was admiring the fresh mint in a neighbors front yard. "Take some!" she said, "you'll regret it!" (she also gave me a Piers Anthony novel) It grows very well. Last year our gardner ripped up pounds and pounds of it where it had ... infected ... the whole garden and moved a few to a pot in the front yard where it's grown thick and well. Every once in a while we make mint julips. This was vodka, crystal light, and 13 mint leaves in the blender with ice.
Now, I must get serious amounts of work done. Be good my friends!
