I've been getting lots of inquiries about our Sunset Viewing Event as well as our Farm To Table Dinner. I'm happy to let you know that we are in the process of finalizing our Sunset Viewing Event which will be held on June 29 (previously scheduled for June 8) and ticket information will be available shortly. Our Farm To Table Dinner will be held on September 21. Look for additional information in the coming weeks.
For a complete list of upcoming events please click HERE. We're carefully watching our lavender and will keep you posted on it's progress. If you didn't prune your lavender at the end of last season you should do it this spring. However, it's important to wait until there's no danger of frost. Also, be careful to not cut into the woody base of the plant. For those of you who have English Lavenders you may already be seeing signs life. If you have French Lavenders, be patient, it's still too early for them. Remember, I'm here to help. And, finally, we'd like to wish you peace, love and happiness at Easter and always. Hope to see you soon, Jim & Monica
