I planted a few herbs in my garden over the weekend: dill, verbena, rosemary and mint. Mint is one my favorites to use on top of granola and yogurt for breakfast and in my favorite summer cocktails. You have to be careful when planting mint because it’s terribly invasive. The plant sends out runners that can quickly take over a garden. A solution I’ve learned from other gardeners is to plant the mint in a terracotta pot and sink it in the ground and back fill with soil. Pull the pot up a few times a summer to make sure no runners have made it out the bottom or the top of the pot. In the fall pull the pot out of the ground and bring indoors.
