I will admit readily that I got this info from the Mother Earth News magazine, (great rag) So this is just a paraphrase of the info.
Mojito's are a Cuban drink consisting of Rum, Powdered sugar, lime juice, club soda and a mint unique to Cuba. Since the real Mojito mint is rare here in the U.S., Spearmint is usually substituted. Said to be the favorite drink of Ernest Hemingway.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I want the real deal. I want Mojito mint. According to the mag. article, Mojito mint is; "clearly different from most other mints. It's scent and flavor are agreeably mild and warm, not pungent or over-sweet like some mints."
Well, thanks to Richters Herbs, we can all grow Mojito mint now. They were able to obtain seed from Cuba and now offer it to gardeners. I only post this info because I like "authenticity". Plus I like to grow things that are rare or hard to obtain. I have no connection to Richters Herbs. There is a link to them on the side bar if you too want the real Mojito this summer.

Saint Fiacre was a holy hermit to whom people came in droves to learn more about the Christian faith. Concerned about their lack of food and shelter during their visits with him, he built a hospice and farmed the land to supply their needs. His hermitage is located in Seine-et-Marne, France. Feast day, Sept. 1st.
Prayer to St. Fiacre:
Saint Fiacre, intercede before God for all gardeners, that their gardens may produce well and be a place of peace and meditation. Amen
