Well guys, my garden was put behind schedule this year. I thought it was due to a colder/wetter than normal spring. There was plenty of water, but no warmth or sunshine!

I've got chocolate mint growing outside & a gorgeous Stevia plant too. Why not brew it into a refreshingly cold, sweetened minty beverage? #TexasHomesteader
