As far as the mint plant, I understand all of your comments, I really do. I agree with them. However it will be on just me to care for the plants and with cooking these meals, thinking about changing my major, a new job I am about to take over. I just don't want to bother with it until I know I am able. I would love to have a garden of my own, but currently not able. You can always assume that if I have the time and resources, I will have a big one.
