Only one mint plant left from last summer? I think I know my problem. I have a veritable thicket of violets. Yes, they are pretty, but they take over just like my mint did in Chicago. So this morning I dug up every last violet plant in what I hope will be my mint garden, exposing my one and lonely mint plant from last year. Take a look at that mass of violets at the far right.
