Herb of the Week – June 23rd
Chocolate Mint smells and tastes amazing, like an after-dinner mint! It is great for recipes calling for a chocolate and minty flavor. Mint likes full sun and grows 12-24″ tall, though it can be invasive. It does great in planters. Regular pinching/trimming helps keep mint healthy and full. This herb is excellent in baked good and hot or cold beverages. It is also a great insect repellent.
