I am growing some mint. My leaves have small holes in them today. How can I get rid of whatever this is and still eat the mint?

There may be several possible culprits, though I would suspect it is either from slugs (which would be feeding at night), cutworms, or some other type of worm (caterpillar). These articles will help determine which one it could be and how to treat the problem: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/facts-about-slugs-and-how-to-kill-garden-slugs.htm, https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/get-rid-cutworms.htm, https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/prevent-caterpillars.htm Eggshells are a good deterent for the slugs, and both neem oil or Bt can help with worms/caterpillars.
