Sad to say it's the nature of mint to overtake a garden plot. The roots are terribly invasive and we always recommend you grow mint in a pot and sink the pot into the ground so you can control the root system. Since yours managed to get out of hand I'm afraid the only way to control it in a veggie garden is to dig the roots out. You may have to dig, and dig, and dig to get them all out, but once you do, you'll have control of the weedy plant. Good luck with your project!
