Mint Has Overtaken My Garden and Heading for the Grass.
How do I get rid of it and be able to plant vegies soon? Is round-up a good idea? If so, how long should I wait to replant with tomatoes, chard, etc? I live in Las Vegas, NV so anytime now is okay to plant.

No matter what you do, you will need to lay down a heavy layer of mulch and/or a weed blocker like newspaper to help kill off the roots of the mint plants.
