Should I plant mint?
As I have been researching companion planting, I keep running across mint as a beneficial to tomatoes, peppers, melons, beans, it seems just about everything! It is also a deterrent to ants, which I have prolifically in my yard. I have not wanted to plant mint in the ground in my garden/yard area because it is so invasive. I have known people whose mint sent rhizomes under concrete and 15 feet away where it pops up. But as I study mint, I'm starting to think that it wouldn't be any worse to have mint in my yard than the weeds that already exist out there. I think my main concern is it taking over my six raised beds. Should I plant it at all, plant it in just the walkways, or plant it everywhere? Thanks!
