Homegrown Harvest Photo Share – Mint

Welcome to this week’s Homegrown Harvest Photo Share! This week we are sharing photos of our mint plants. If you are unfamiliar with our HHPS take a look a the link which explains things more in full, but basically we just love seeing people’s gardens and sharing our photos. So if you have any pictures of mint, make a post and share it with us and leave a link in the comments! We look forward to seeing everyone photos!

Mint is one of my favorite herbs to grow but I’ve learned the hard way just how invasive this herb can be when it’s planted in the garden. Mint is an easy herb to grow but you have to be able to rein it in by keeping it in a container.

The mint we planted in one of our 4′ x 4′ raised beds took over and then jumped the garden bed and came up in the gravel pathway outside the bed. It did this in one of our containers too. The way mint grows with underground runners diverting off is what makes mint so invasive.

Thanks for checking our this week’s Homegrown Harvest Photo Share of Mint, we hope to see your photos soon.
