Feeding wild mint?

Postby DragonPete » Tue Jan 14, 2020 2:32 pm

Hi all!
Question. I searched 'mint' and see that it's used for detox or tummy issues. Is it ok to add a couple small leaves to his greens, just for variety?
I have tons of wild mint growing in my yard along with dandelion. No, there are no chemicals used in my yard or ANY yard near me. I also grow spearmint and sweet mint in containers.
Any opinions or insight?
Thanx!

Yeah you can offer it. My guy will sometimes go after the mint in my garden but doesn't seem to like it too often. I'm sure their preferences for it will vary though so worth trying it out.

Thanks! I might give him a couple bites NOT on his greens just in case he doesn't like it. Wouldn't want to make him avoid his greens afterwards ya know? Most creatures do like a little variety occasionally.
Appreciate the reply.

My guys eat a tiny bit of mint mixed with a salad . If you have clover in your yard the green leaves are also a very healthy food.

Really? Great! I have all the stuff that most people don't want in their yards. 😆 Add a little variety without having to pay for it. Works for me!
Thanks!
