Spearmint versus Peppermint

Did you know there was a difference? Me either!  Then I read this post on Sumo Gardner http://sumogardener.com Check it out for yourself  http://sumogardener.com/spearmint-vs-peppermint/

I Think my favorite Chocolate mint is peppermint because it's leaves are definitely growing on the stems. Check out the link above to see what you have growing in your garden or what you might want to purchase next spring.   

BTW: I bring my chocolate mint into the house and grow it in water on my windowsill in late fall. This way I can enjoy it in my tea for a longer season.
