Volunteer Mint


Last fall, as the mint in my window herb garden started to struggle, I put the pot outside in hopes that a little more natural light would help it out. I forgot about it as the weather turned cold and eventually the plant died. But not, apparently, before spreading its seeds.

Spring is here and as I was getting started with a little yard work I discovered . . . volunteer mint. A whole host of it. I think this is nature's way of saying I should renew my experiment with learning to make a proper mojito. The secret, I'm convinced, is in the muddling. And maybe I'll give a mint julep a try, too.

Hope you're prepared for a yard full of mint. It will take over, you know. Bring on the mojitos.
