Mint will soon fill the pot!Growing a pot of mint in your garden is one of the most satisfying plants you'll cultivate. You can almost watch it grow and expand. That's why you'll want to contain it in a pot. Left on its own in your garden, it will take over every inch of available dirt in no time.

But, having a container by your kitchen door is handy for an endless number of culinary treats. Add some chopped leaves to simmering rice, put sprigs in a whole trout for a tasty kick on the grill, and use for plate garnishes and natural centerpieces.

My favorite treat is mint tea. Pluck a few leaves and let them steep in boiling water for a few minutes. For summer, pour the infused mint tea over a tall glass of ice cubes for refreshing hydration. Enjoy.
