Lavender-n-other lovely flowers

Today in the morning I transplanted more “Provence” lavender starts into 3.5″ pots, as I waited on customers. These plants will need about two weeks to gain more root growth, before they are ready to sell. After lunch, I split apart a few perennial flowers that out grew the area where they were planted. Three of these plants are Echinacea, Potentilla (yellow), and Geum (orange). I moved them around to different locations at the entrance of our Lavender farm.  I also transplanted five small sunflower plants to the back of our farm. These sunflowers will grow tall and more will be planted to become a beautiful back drop for photos taken across our lavender flowers, and up toward Mt. Hood. They will also, help hid our two port-a-potties, located at the back of the farm. Besides all this fun, tending my garden, I spent several hours sitting on the patio watching tiny Hummingbirds buzz around the feeders.  They are little bits of magic in our lives 🙂

Working at a Lavender Farm :)

Today I worked with one of our most awesome employees training a new girl to work with us this summer. We discussed many different tasks that would be done, including helping customers with products, product knowledge, and learning how to complete credit card sales, to name a few. Since our Lavfarm gets extremely busy in June, July and August, when the lavender flowers are at peak bloom, two people often need to work together, one in the retail cottage, and another taking customers out to demonstrate how to U-pick their lavender bouquets. One of the most important tasks, when you don’t have any customers, is to go out in the garden and “Weed” 🙂
