Therefore, we have not had much mint in our lives - I only dare grow it in pots, and around here few things in pots survive a 40+ day. They tend to get cooked.
But, we've got this odd scrappy bit of garden. Its at the top of the drive, and is home to an apricot tree, the airconditioner and The Cat That Will Not Die - thus the kennel and the blanket.
This area is surrounded by tarmac, and has, to date, done little except grow weeds and provide shelter for the many members of our snail population.
