July 20th Update

On July 20, we began the first Grosso harvest of 2015.  Monday afternoon, we collected over 250 bundles which will be dried and used for potpourri and sachets as well as dried stocks.  The harvesting of Grosso will continue for at least a week.  In addition, we continue to harvest fresh Folgate, Royal Velvet and Melissa bundles for daily sale on the farm and for steam distillation.  The steam distiller will be in use daily until mid August as we produce essential oil and hyrdosol (lavender water) for sale.  Our niece Julia has been helping out these past two weeks and we are grateful for the extra pair of hands and strong back!!
