I hate the taste of mint. At the house before my current home we had mint growing wild in the yard and two of my neighbours would pick some whenever they needed it.
I usually grow tomatoes and cucumbers each year but this year both crops failed. Talking to a neighbour (5 houses away) I found out his tomatoes also failed. He said it happen to others in the neighbourhood as well. No sign of pests. The neighbour thought it might be as a result of toxins released by the big bushfires we had but I am far from convinced of that.
