Wow what a summer (so far)! We harvested lavender! ...using hand clippers and moving on to using hedge clippers. We appreciate friends who helped and/or came to visit! Since we didn't know we would have flowers this first year..a nice surprise..we were...aaa... not really prepared?! We are newbies..but we are learning. We are thinking and discussing ideas for next Spring/early Summer. Perhaps Open Farm Days? Someday... out there... a Lavender Festival in 2020 or 2021? God lead us on!
We have a wonderful soap maker working with us! (Julee Davis/Ancestral Herbals - Follow her on Facebook and her Web link is ShopAncestralHerbals.com/) She has made a fabulous Lavender Bud soap...and an awesome Rosemary/Lavender soap. We display/promote her soap etc. and she promotes our Farm and our Dried Lavender Bunches. She is also interested in our "soon-to-be" produced essential oil/Hydrosol. We love that she is excited about using our Cochise County Grosso (Varietal) Lavender!
We are getting more followers on Facebook..and have been at a few Farmers' Markets. We have sold out of plants we have grown from cuttings off of the Field Lavender Plants. We still have lots of dried Lavender Bundles and sachets! They both are great for relaxation, headaches and even keeping moths away! We should and will have more plants for sale! We are working on propagating more..and plan to have them available for various events this fall!
Thanks for all your well wishes, prayers and encouragements: it is all much appreciated!
Blessings to you!
Pam, Chuck, and Titus..who says "bark bark"... he is our good "doggy friend" and/or comforter! 🐾🐾🙏
