It was a beautiful sunny afternoon in August, and I captured a few minutes of amazing busy honeybees working on a small patch of little purple spearmint flowers.
Mint is a edible perennial, meaning it will come back each year. In Anchorage, our climate is right on the border of whether it can survive the winter - depending on where you live in the city (Anchorage has many "microclimates"), you may or may not be able to winter over spearmint in the ground outdoors.
Cooler climate regions (like Alaska) can grow so many amazing, delicious plants. See how to identify Alaska's common wild edible plants, plus how to harvest plants you might have already growing in your garden.
