Grow mints or other aggressively spreading plants in tubs partially sunk into the ground. Punch a few holes in the bottom of the tub for drainage.

Whenever an old cooking pot is no longer serviceable in the kitchen, punch some holes and plant it. The canning kettles are a good size for the mint. (I do not advocate doing this with actual antique items.)
