In addition to my patio herb garden, I also planted herbs in some of my other flower beds. In the front yard, I added a couple of peppermint plants as ground cover. So far they’re doing really well.

Recently, while studying different uses for herbs, I came across several recipes for making peppermint tea. As a tea lover, I thought this would be something I’d like, so I decided to give it a try.
