The gardener grew salad leaves and a few vegetables near his mud house at the end of the garden and my stepfather asked him to pick the leaves when they were still almost seedlings. Every salad included mint, which is very refreshing during hot weather. In addition, we used to pick a few scented pink rose petals to throw into the salad, as my mother said they looked so pretty amongst the green.
