My New Crazy Summer Project

I may have mentioned in the past that I am growing lavender. Well, I've decided to also harvest and dry it this summer and see what I can do with it. I'm already researching syrups, jelly, and teas. Thinking sachet gifts for family members for Christmas.

I'm harvesting on Mondays, allowing the flowers to dry during the week, then removing the dried florets on Sunday evenings. After only two weeks, this is how much I have... and the bush in the back yard hasn't even begun to bloom yet.
