Pineapple Mint

IMG_7116Lots of pineapple mint came up this Spring all over the main rooftop.  The NE corner box which is being dismantled has a lot that need to be transplanted.  This container is supposed to just store potting mix for use next season.  I decided to plop some pineapple mint in it for the heck of it.  Over the next few weeks I’ll try and give away all the mint.  Mint is a nice invasive plant and one of the few plants that can survive winters in Zone 5 Chicago in conatiners.
