  1. We had so much mint at our old home. It was everywhere. I’ve resisted the temptation to bring some here, but then again, I know I’ll miss it if I don’t set out at least a bit. I loved adding fresh mint to “smoothies” on Saturday mornings, or adding a bit to a chocolate cake. We’re putting out herbs this weekend, so I might have to grab a bit of mint.
