I'd like you to meet the Kentucky Colonel

What's great in the garden today and all summer? Mint! Specifically, Kentucky Colonel spearmint (Mentha spicata). Keep it under control in the garden by cutting lots to put in vases in the kitchen, deck, or porch - just wash the leaves before arranging and it's ready to use in all types of iced drinks or to garnish desserts - or just crush a few leaves to release the refreshing fragrance! (Bonus - ants hate it so it's great for picnics, too!)
