Challenges & Blessings

Challenges & Blessings

Early Spring at the farm brought days and days of rain.  Once again, we faced the challenges of unpredictable weather which farmers have been dealing with since the beginning of time.   Our planned days of planting had to be delayed for weeks.  Sadly, some of our transfers didn’t survive the wait. When the ground was finally dry enough, we placed the young plants in the soil.  Some of the planting coincided with the early harvesting of Munstead and Hidcote.  Planting. Harvesting. Making products. Selling.  And more. All at once.  Oh my goodness!  This was definitely not our plan!  But here...

A Lesson In Lavender: From cookies to lemonade, Stuart woman highlights flower’s impact By Holly Kozelsky  Jun 20, 2017 CRITZ - Debbie Brown’s love of lavender started when someone gave her the gift of lavender lotion.

April on the Farm

The warm days of April are finally here and we are hard at work in our little corner of the world.  Fresh green growth has magically appeared on most of our lavender plants.  We are thankful once again to see this miracle!

This will help Ronnie greatly when tilling rows on the new ground we’re preparing on our slope.  We have learned tilling on a hill can be quite challenging with a walk behind. Besides, tractors are more fun! This week we are replacing the plants...

There are many varieties of lovely lavender.  It's important to choose a plant that has already proven to do well in your particular area.  We are in zone 7 and have had...

Winter Light

Winter Light

While the dead of winter isn’t the busiest time on a lavender farm, there are still things going on… even in January.  We took a chance when we planted new cuttings in the garden in late October, knowing that decision would bring extra work over the winter.  Every time the temperature has dipped to freezing we’ve diligently protected these tender shoots with row cover. It’s been on and off with the covering several times.  Though we’ve lost a few, we’re hopeful the plants that have survived so far will be bearing new growth in the Spring. Meanwhile, we have 55 cuttings...
