Mint Family is Full of Vitamin C

Pepper mint and other members of the mint family are very useful. I have a lot of pepper mint, spear mint, lemon balm, purple dead nettle, .. in my property. Pepper mint is a reliable source of vitamin C throughout the entire year. I simply put a bunch of them into my tea kettle together with a couple of tea bags.

Mint is also very useful for controlling rodents and deer. These critters are enemies of reforestation cause they destroy young tree seedlings. Some people believe the mint family is very invasive. Look at the bright side. If you keep eating them. They are not that difficult to control. And it is much more useful that your grass lawn. If you don't want them, just mow it down and it is very low growing. Or just cover it will some cardboard if you really want to get rid of it.
