I love mint and I use it in just about everything! The best way to use mint is fresh, so of course I need to grow some every year. However, mint is a very invasive plant. It reproduces by sending out roots called runners just below the soil, so one mint plant can quickly turn into a garden full! This is why you need to grow mint in a container. I decided to put it in a planter and being as frugal as I am, I started looking around for things to reuse verses buying a new planter. That is how my mint ended up being planted in a kitty litter box, and a galvanized tub that was left behind by the people that built this house.
