Time to Harvest Lavender!

 

 

 

Oh Glorious Lavender!  It is time!

If you grow Lavender you’ll know what I mean when I say “It’s Time!”  Lavender has a short window of opportunity to get it harvested, usually within a week…

The flowers bloom…DSCF9140

…usually it takes a few days before all of them bloom…DSCF9158

…and then they need to be cut and dried.  I leave some on the plant for the bees but most all of it gets cut!  This is enough to make a small sachet…just heavenly!

If you’ve never had a chance to grow Lavender or gone to pick some now would be the time (in the Midwest)!

Have a great day!  I’ll be working on my scraps…
