My peppermint keeps dropping its leaves. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. The soil has good drainage, the plant is on a sunny window.

Make sure the soil isn't too wet, as mint doesn't like wet feet. Allow the top inch to dry out before watering again. Also, it may be too sunny in the window and the foliage is burning. Mint can take fairly strong sun when planted outdoors, but it benefits from filtered shade.
