    I already made the mistake of planting mint in my main garden bed. Still not to large, so hopefully I can get a new setup before it takes over. It's growth is ridiculous. Thanks for the video!

    Quick question, Mint harmful to quail?

    I don't think it would be harmful to the birds but I doubt they would eat it...

    Quail do like eating sprouted seeds though, so perhaps some mixed sprouted salad and herb seeds would be worth trying.

    Today's weather is just right for mint!

    Mark, watching you prune your mint reminded me of someone who used electric hedge pruners to do it.

    Those grasshoppers you found in your mint should go to the chooks or maybe your quail.

    My favourite way of using mint is in my home made mango sorbet icecream.
    Hotly followed by summer punch with fresh ginger & mint crushed into ice cubes before filling jug with water.
