An abundance of mint

Marley Hill allotment May 13 1

We don't just have an abundance of strawberries at the moment. Mint has taken over a patch of Dad's allotment and is spreading rapidly. David spent some time this afternoon digging some of it out and putting it into pots. In that way it can be controlled. I will also use some to make mint sauce this week.

At our next allotment cafe on 30th June, I guess we will be offering mint tea. I may also be selling off mint and strawberry plants at the craft fair I also run at the same venue (Marley Hill Community Centre). And given the amount of seeds planted up over the weekend, we may have a variety of other plants on sale as well.
