What's In Your Garden?

Chocolate aficionados take note: A plant that tastes like a peppermint patty that is actually growing on campus? That may sound too good to be true, but visit the UofM's on-campus garden and take a sample of the chocolate mint plant that is one of many varieties of vegetables and herbs found in the green area next to the Fieldhouse just off Zach Curlin.

"It definitely has a distinct chocolate taste to it. It is just one of many surprises found in the garden," said University of Memphis editor Greg Russell after he recently visited the garden initiative, dubbed TIGUrS. "There is also an apple mint plant. I imagine you can make some fantastic tea from those leaves." Most of the garden was planted in the past month, but that might be hard to tell: several plants have already sprouted huge leaves and vines. The garden takes on a different look with each passing week as the weather warms.

Fruit trees will soon be planted, too.

What makes the garden so unique is that once the crops are ready to be harvested, anyone with a use for them can take them at no cost. And if you want to volunteer for the garden, contact Karyl Buddington at 901.678.2359 or kbudding@memphis.edu.
