Just about every day here on the homestead I am walking around to see what is growing. Today I decided to pluck a plant that I suspected was in the mint family because it has a square stem and smells faintly of mint. Thanks to Google (Image and Web), I found out that it is in the mint family (catnip genus, according to Green Deane’s post) and goes by several names: Gill Over the Ground and Ground Ivy and more.
To learn more about this plant, I’ll direct you to one of my favorite teacher’s website: http://www.eattheweeds.com/ground-ivy/ (Green Deane’s post has better, close-up photos than my post.)
Have a great day!
