Blooming Rock Garden Part 12 Lavender (a spin-off)

This is kind of cheating because it's not blooming anymore. It's been harvested and dried.


I made a number of different items with the lavender last year including sachets, eye pillows, and small bouquets.

This year I tried a few recipes, combined a couple to make my own, and baked lavender cookies to sell at the farmer's market. I also made little copies of the recipe and enough lavender buds to make 3-5 dozen. I hope to sell quite a few.


Next year I'll have 22 lavender plants to harvest versus the 2 I had this year. I anticipate lavender soap in my future.
