Gardening in the 23rd century

When I told my sister-in-law that I was growing mint, she told me:
“Friends don’t let friends grow mint”.
My mother gave me a clump of mint last year and I brought it home to no avail. It did not take. So this year I bought some mint seed and it has sprouted and the little mint plants are doing ok in their peat pot so far.
We’ll see.
