You too? My mom talked about summers spent with her grandparents, having the same!
When I was a kid I'd spend summers with my grandparents, too, where we'd come in from the farm to have "dinner" around one in the afternoon, and then in the evening have "supper" which was generally bread (baked that morning) and butter, maybe some leftover meat, and fresh from the garden tomatoes, cucumbers, green onions, and radishes. Heavenly. Their vegetable garden was about the size of my whole backyard.
I am not looking to go that far. I do have recipes that call for mint, but not enough to where I need to buy a mint plant. A few leaves is all I need.
For what you spend on a few recipes' worth in the produce section you can buy a plant and a pot and have mint whenever you need it all summer long. If you're partial to combining mint with rum and lime the way I am on a summer night, I can't recommend it highly enough.
