Invade, invade!

Story: I hand-water the tomatoes, the basil, the eggplants, but never the mint. The mint asks nothing of me and never stops giving, almost all year long. I like that in a plant.

Tip: Folks will tell you not to plant mint, that it’s invasive. Well, as I sit her with an effortless bounty of tea, pesto, and candied mint on brownies, I say, “Invade! Invade!” Make the best decision for you — plant it either contained (if room is tight) or with room to grow.

Recipe: This one is a crowd-pleaser that surprises people.
