♥ Time to play with mint! ♥
Our fifth week of summer camp is all about one of my family's favorite herbs, mint!
Projects and Recipes
We have a huge mint patch in our backyard. It started years ago when I planted a little peppermint plant next to a little spearmint plant. With the passage of time they have grown and spread, intermingling into a luscious green wonder. We also have a big whiskey barrel in our yard where chocolate mint plays with a raspberry bush and pansies. The result is that I have plenty of mint to enjoy with my family. You don't need lots of mint to do these projects, just a bit will do. But if you have a lot of mint, these projects will help you and your kids enjoy it!Read More
