2008 Lavender harvest

2008 Lavender harvest, originally uploaded by foodchronicles.

Yes, I have put it off for about three weeks! But last night I finally went out and harvested the lavender. We have four large plants that needed to be cut. The picture shows this year's harvest!

No9w it will go to the drying shed (garage) and get nice and dried out. The I will make sachets, and set some aside for herbs de provence. Then I am going to try and do distilling this time around. I'll also just bag up some buds to use around the house while cleaning. I love sprinkling them on the carpet while I vacuum, they leave such a wonderful scent.

If any of you readers would like a 4 oz bag of lavender, let me know. I'd love to send you some!
