Peppermint is a perennial, and acts as an excellent groundcover, with dark green leaves and reddish-purple blooms. Grows to 24" tall. It will flower from July to August. Interplant peppermint with roses as a groundcover to repel pests. Use tender, young leaves for hot and cold teas and as a garnish on fruit and dinner plates. Use fresh, frozen, or dried. Many home remedies use mint to relieve headaches, cramps, colds and bad breath.
Mints are at their peak of flavor just before they flower. When ready to harvest your mint, do it early in the day. Cut sprigs from the plant and swish in a sink full of cool water to remove dirt and debris. Pat dry on paper towels. Use a dehydrator on the lowest setting or air dry in a shaded, well-ventilated area. Leaves will be brittle when dried completely. Hold stem with thumb and forefinger and strip the leaves. Store in an airtight container. Sprigs can be picked to use in recipes as needed, or freeze leaves in ice cubes. Harvest sprigs just before the flowers open for most intense flavor.

In light of everything going on in the world we have implemented some changes to ensure your safety. Our hours will be looking a little different Monday through Friday; we will be having reserved hours for those who are members of the vulnerable population group. 8 am to 9 am will be the time frame set aside for your needs to shop. We are also taking steps to help provide a cleaner environment for you and your loved ones. We have scheduled an employee to come in each morning prior to us opening to clean the store. We also strongly encourage that when you're in the store please practice social distancing. You should be at least 6 ft from others. As of right now we are still not set up to provide services such as curbside assistance. We are trying to do what we can in light of everything going on in the world. We encourage you to practice the safety guidelines that have been ordered by our Governor and Health Department. We appreciate your continued support of our small businesses during these unforeseen difficult times.
