A co-worker continues to bring me goodies from her garden. She gave me a bunch of thyme and asked if I was interested in growing mint and Asian basil in my own garden. Excited, I said yes in nothing flat. A few days later she brought me a mint plant and a sprout of Asian basil. I weeded my garden and planted the herbs along with the Italian basil plant. To be honest, I'm not much of a gardener. I have a history of killing mint, which seems to be one of the easiest things to grow. I'm hoping it grows well this time. My mother in-law warned me that mint can spread like weeds. To me, that would be success. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
