Sometimes, it is time to turn the page, and what better time than on the waning of a cool spring moon! Summer is upon us and with it an early lavender bloom. Time for the beginning of scented days and busy product making. Three lovely girls spent all day Friday cutting and screening culinary buds, thanks gals! When early bloom occurs, and it miraculously occurred given the amount of cold North Wind we encountered this year, it means we may even have a second bloom of lavender, during the summer. For now, it is time to come out and see the blush of summer on the Lavandins, intermediate lavenders with parents in the English and varietal families, and the full bloom of the ever sweet English culinary purples. (Thanks to Augusta Magazine for their review of our farm’s lavender on the Garden Page.) We will be open this Friday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. for sales and walk-abouts! Come on out to the farm! Soaps, salves, balms, fresh herbs and J and L eggs, all available.
This week, we will demonstrate harvesting, storing and uses for wild garlic! Watch us make garlic vinegar and try a sample.
