If you read my blog last year, then you might remember that I let my herbs take over the part of the garden that I was not using. Unchecked, the peppermint spread like it was meant to spread—everywhere. I remember just two years ago when this was a small plant that only used around 6 square feet of garden real estate. And before then, the peppermint spent years, a decade, struggling to survive. Now look at it; it’s living in a space that is around 300-400 square feet.
I need to start harvesting and drying peppermint now, every single day for two or three weeks, then I can pull its roots back to a little 6-square feet area, and plant the summer garden.
