Growing Candy in your Own Back Yard or
Peppermint, with its small lilac blossoms, is a hardy perennial, that can be
grown in most everyone's back yard, although I would suggest that you
be careful where you plant it, as it has a habit of taking over everything.  
Guess it is the mafia ganster of herbs.

Yet, the aroma that is released by brushing your hand over the leaves
can be intoxicatingly delicious!

If you want to add a plant to your home that smells wonderful, when you
brush by, try growing peppermint.  It is an easy indoor plant to grow,
just keep it clipped. This easy to grow plant will survive most anywhere.

Harsh winters don't seem to bother this plant, neither does hot
summers.  Peppermint like to be grown in partial shade.

Peppermint has many aliases, names such as lamb mint, mint lady, or
brandy mint.  But what ever it calls itself these days, you can rest
assured that peppermint is tasty as always.

The flowering tops and leaves are used to derive peppermint oil, a sweet
flavoring used in many drinks, including hot tea.

My personal favorite peppermint plants were the chocolate peppermint,
pineapple peppermint, and spearmint.

Wanted to let you know, that I saw a girl selling "sage wands" on ebay
the other day.  She was getting 14.00 for 10 sage sticks.  Amazing!  See
you can make money from your own backyard.  I know, sage isn't candy,
but it was making money, so I thought it was worth a mention.
