    Well you all have just rained on my parade! I thought I was the only one growing mint in the ground. Ok, here's a good one. I'm the only one that fertilizes hers! :tongue

    Off you go to a Pho restaurant ...

    You have your beef, noodles, green onions, bean sprouts, cilantro, Thai basil ... and mint?!

    ... just be careful to move the mint to the side of your bowl ... so that there is less of a chance of you stuffing it in your mouth and eating any of it.

    ;) Steve

    The orange is the most fragrant. It's a spicy citrusy minty smell. But not always easy to find.
