Balcony Garden: Harvest Monday #46

I honestly think that mint could survive a nuclear war! This mint has probably been dead more than it has been alive but it continues to bounce back. There's got to be a life lesson in there for us all...I'm just not sure what it is - don't let the bad bugs get you down maybe?

The Sydney weather has been a bit hot lately...and a bit cold too, but what ever the weather it's always nice to drink some freshly made iced-mint tea.  My doctor has told me that I have high cholesterol and that soft drinks are a big BIG no no for the cholesterolly challenged liked moi so this shall be a summer of freshly brewed iced mint tea (not that I drink a lot of soft drink mind you -- but every little bit helps).  Apparently I'm just one of those people with high cholesterol - it's genetic rather than diet induced...but I wonder what else I could be doing better (if you say lay off Lord of the Fries I'm going to cry).

Happy gardening, Miss Piggy xox


  1. Didn't know that about mint tea and cholesterol. Will give it a go. My mint plant has resurrected from the dead a few times now - I planted it about 8 years ago, and every year rip it "all" out. Or so I think. Apparently not as it's on a garden domination bent again!

  2. Hi Mel - I don't think there's a correlation between mint tea & cholesterol -- I'm just off soft drinks so need to come up with other tasty things to drink.

  3. oh fair enough! I'm going to be making lots of iced teas over summer using herbal teas - some of those are gorgeous. My favourite is lemongrass and ginger

    Haha mint is super hardy! We found that out the hard way when it took over our entire garden at home. If only basil grew with as much voracity!

  6. I am no where near as lucky with my mint :( I'm a total mint killer. Must be the location I have it in.
