It's very unfortunate that I have to write an obituary. My mint plant couldn't survive the heat wave that hit the east coast last month. It had kept two green leaves for a while, but they are all gone. It is now officially dead. I killed a mint plant, which, for many, seems to be more difficult than growing it. Anyhow, I did it again.
It wasn't a good feeling. I confessed to my co-worker that the mint plant wasn't growing well. She kindly brought mint leaves along with a bunch of thyme, both of which were freshly picked from her garden. I cut a tomato and an orange, then simply mixed them with balsamic vinegar, olive oil and mint. When the ingredients are fresh, simple is often best.
