I’m a cuckoo…?

Posted by Alix on 20 September 2008

I’ve been cultivating windowboxes for a while, and had grown some mint from seed, which despite a slow start has in recent weeks grown rapidly, anyway the other day I took a closer look at it, and tasted a leaf and it was distintly un-minty. Plus it doesn’t look like mint. I’m pretty ready to conclude that it isn’t in fact, mint.  But what is it? And can I eat it? Shall I have to create a brand new strain of mojito?

  1. definitely doesn’t look like mint…

    It doesn’t taste at all thymey. It tastes a little like one of those lettuces that seem almost soapy leafed. It’s probably just a weed, isn’t it?!
