Re: weather

This plant reseeds rampantly in my garden.  I have never eaten it, but
an oriental person who came to do some work spied it and declared it
was a choice vegetable in his country.  The plant is very attractive, and
the leaves are quite fragrant.  I wouldn't know how to cook it, and it seems
a bit strong to add raw to a salad.

of the mint family used in Japanese cooking. The cultivar  
'Atropurpurea' is called "beefsteak plant".
