On Some Reassuring News about Corsican Mint

11Mar08

In which The Gay Recluse shares a letter.

Robert from Ohio writes:

“I saw the article you wrote on the Corsican Mint. I live in North East Ohio, which is just as harsh a climate as NYC. I have planted the mint at several folks’ homes and it does come back every year. Sometimes the plant survives and sometimes it doesn’t, that depends on the harshness of the winter. It does however seed itself back into existence every year, so fret not Great Gay Recluse!”

Thanks, Robert! In a word: awesome. We have traveled many (many many many) times across the plains of Northeast Ohio and feel very reassured that if “the mint” can survive there, we are — as you rightly point out — in good shape in New York City. We were just out in the garden this past weekend, looking at the rocks and crevices where it had so pleasantly established itself last season; while we didn’t see any signs of life, we will stop fretting and look forward to May, when we can retire to the verdant pleasures of a garden in bloom!

This was last season. According to Robert from Ohio, we need not fret: our beloved Corsican mint will return! Obviously, we will keep you posted.
