The harvesting of lavender continues. Once again we will be bringing fresh-cut lavender to market. It will be the last time this year, so be sure to get to the market early to be sure that we do not sell out.

The key to harvesting lavender is to wait until the blossoms just start to open. How do you know that when the blossoms are opening? Look for bees. If there are bees flying about, the blossoms have opened. Luckily the bees are happy to share access to these beautiful flowers.
We have some crops that will be ready in a few weeks or so (Mother Nature dependent of course!). Here are just a few:
