I bought a spearmint plant from a garden center a few months back, and it's been doing great. Every week, I've been picking the leaves off the plant and making mint iced tea. I add a little bit of honey to sweeten it up. Oh, it is sooo good. So many people have told me not to plant the spearmint into the ground because it grows like crazy. I'm thinking though that I wouldn't mind if I had plants multiplying out of control since there are so many recipes I can try with this yummy mint!
