is that mint? looks delicious!

Steph said...

Yes, it is apple mint. When I was a kid we gathered it from a meadow down the road from our house. Then my Mom's husband planted some in their garden. I have some growing by the back door that came from plants that my step-dad gave me a couple years ago. It spreads like crazy.

OMG, that looks amazing. I would love to grow mint but I know how invasive it is - but to be able to make a drink like that, YUMMMM!

Steph said...

Incredibly invasive, yes. I love the way it makes the house smell, so I am resigned to yank a bunch out once a year.

Oh yum! That looks SOO good! Stepph, have you thought of growing it in a opt so it doesn't take over? Thats how I do it.

That was for learp17, not Steph, sorry!
