Hello My Lavender Loving Friends, I want to give you an update on our 2019 Lavender Season. First I want to take a moment to express our deep appreciation for the love and support we've received since we published our recent Newsletter on 5/23 which you may read HERE. We had no idea so many of you love our farm as much as we do. When we first faced the reality that we will most likely lose all our French lavender, we questioned whether or not to continue with our lavender dream. I now know that the decision to replant was the right decision. Knowing that our property brings joy and peacefulness to so many, makes all our hard work and effort worth it and for that we are imensely grateful. And now for the moment we've all been waiting for... Purple Watch 2019 is on!! Pictured here is our Lavandula Angustifolia Folgate and Royal Velvet (English Lavender). Both are great for culinary by the way.
And, of course, the Million Dollar Questions is "When will it be in full bloom?" That's a difficult question to answer this season and frankly, it's a guessing game given the lack of consistent sunshine and warm temps. As usual, I'll post updates on our Facebook and Instagram.
In keeping with our continued desire to be transparent and truthful, here is what our field looks like at the moment. You can see the first twelve rows of French lavenders... so sad :( In the distance, you can see the English looking lush and green which we are so grateful for :) It was wonderful to see so many of you here this past weekend, enjoying the serenity of our property. It reminded us that this is part of the reason we started the farm and why we will replant.
