Peppermint is what's flowering right now! When my kids were much younger
I would make them teas using various herbs from the garden, mint
always played a strong role in that tea. As winter seems to be soon upon
us in the PNW it gets me thinking that it's time to bring in some mint.
Yes, I have read the advice to harvest herbs before they flower and
yes I tend to ignore that advice. Of course I could have harvested
the tips to keep the blooms away and prolong that harvest
but why would I? I love the flowers and so do the bees!
