    I bought lemon balm just because it smelled so amazing!
    Last week I made a half lemonade/half lemon balm tea that turned out pretty great. I didn’t have an exact recipe, just sort of winged it. The zest of 10 lemons, a cup of bruised lemon balm and 1 1/2 c honey in boiling water soaked for 15mins and then strained. Mixed with the juice of the lemons and then about 5c. water.

    It’s been awhile since I visited your blog. Then last night, I ran across your PL entries OMG I was so thrilled to see someone who could make scrap booking like clean, simple, and not so trendy or cheesy. I was so excited and ordered what I needed to get started, then I stalked your Pinterest pages. Can’t wait to get started, thanks for sharing.
    I can’t believe how fast your kids are growing.

    Pay the kids $1/bucket to rip a bunch of it out for you. I had mint take over a section of my garden when my back was turned. I swear it happened that fast. I dug up the entire lot of it and moved it to a spot bordered by concrete so it can’t spread again.

    i agree with sandra! i love lemon balm tea. i also dry lots and lots of it in the summer and package it up all cute for christmas presents. lemon balm and lemon verbena also go well together as tea herbs.

    Yank it out quick! It spreads like crazy. I use it liberally as a foliage filler for any flowers I cot from the garden too – kind of productive pruning!
