Lavender Harvest

The Lavender Harvest
Here you can see a basket of lavender bundles ready to go to market, these are the five dollar bundles and are about the size of a 50 cent piece.

If you would like to order some fresh lavender bundles contact me at my email address K2P2SSK @ CENTURYTEL . NET (delete the spaces) with the number of bundles you would like to order, We send a little more than double the size you see in the picture above in each bundle, these all weigh out at 5oz each and the ones we send are all 12oz when fresh. I will then send you a request for money from paypal or you can ask for my address to send the check to. WARNING: Lavender harvest is only 2 weeks so we will run out of fresh lavender bundles in another week or so. If you are sending acheck for fresh you need to send it yesterday!!
Here is a the beginning of the lavender harvest with the larger bundles which are as big around as our fingers can reach. We later weigh them all to be sure the count is correct and then arrange in nice neat bundles so we can mail them out wrapped in tissue the same day they are picked.
Use lavender to help ward off moths from your fiber stash. If you soak thestems, leaves, and buds in vinegar in a glass jar for 2 weeks and thenstrain and put in a spray bottle you'll have a wonderful cleaner that willrepel bugs (ants hate lavender) as well as clean your counters and help makeyour kitchen or studio smell wonderful!

I prefer PayPal, but checks or money orders are acceptable too - REMEMBERit's a 2 week window for harvesting the lavender so you need to act quicklyto be sure we don't sell it all before your check arrives!!
