In the back of the yard, ma grows mint. It grows like a weed but that is a good thing. In our backyard we have a natural bog that is under ground and ma grows plants that drink the extra water that the bog leaves.
A bog can be a wonderful garden if you are able to keep it up but it can also be a nightmare. A bog is the perfect place for mosquitoes to breed. The parents add dirt but a bog has a way of making all that dirt disappear. They added concrete blocks and then dirt but those also disappeared. The only thing that has worked besides a drought is planting water loving plants.
Mint is one of those wonderful plants that doesn't care if it is planted in a dry area or a wet area. It is just happy to grow. The other wonderful thing about mint is that our guinea pigs love it. Cookie goes wild for it.

It is also good in a glass of tea or in recipes. Ma says it also makes a great mint julep. A drink that is a Kentucky tradition.
We mostly use it for guinea pigs. Jenny Sue loves it too.We hope you enjoy the photo as much as we enjoyed taking it.
Have a peaceful Sunday.
