Today I was up early, 6 AM, cutting several varieties of Angustifolia, “English” Lavender, with one of my awesome workers. We bundled the lavender with rubber bands, then hung it to dry. It should take about a week, or so, in our 90′ temps. Then we will rub the buds off, and clean the lavender, with gloves on, and package it for Culinary use. A few of our favorite varieties are Melissa, a white lavender, Munstead, Middachton, and Provence. This is our busiest time of the year. After all this work, I need something to help me cool down. I think I’ll make some Lavender Ice Cream or go downtown for Lavender Gelato at Doppio 🙂 🙂
It was a spectacular Lavender Daze Festival this past weekend!! Woohoo!!
We want to thank the hundreds, and hundreds of people for coming out to celebrate Lavender with us! The music was wonderful, as well as the vendors, including Charburger Bar-B-Q, and Doppio’s Lavender Gelato, for food. The other 17 arts and crafts vendors were awesome too, lots of unique and great talent. Plenty of sunshine, beautiful people, and Organic Lavender…does it get any better than that???
