Mint gone to flower
You really shouldn't let your herbs go to flower. They will put all of their energy into making seed instead of making more leaves. So, since I use the leaves of my mint and basil I cut back their flowers today. All is not lost though. They are now sitting in my summer cup to be enjoyed till their energy is spent and I return them to the Earth as they wilt to add to the circle of life.
