Elizabeth's post below about using mint in summer rolls reminded us of this very persistent mint plant. More photos of the runaway mint, below... We're a little bemused by this, but we're getting ready to visit and dig out a few plants to put in a big pot. We do love mint, and as we told reader Jen in the answer to her question about growing mint, it's not that hard to grow it in a pot. In fact, it's preferable.
Here's one more little runaway plant - we're digging out the roots this time! We love this variety - it's very soft, with huge sweet leaves, but it is a pest if it goes unchecked.
