time to harvest for the dried lavender (so it will not “shatter” in a bouquet.)
This morning two events! The lavender harvest for the lavender we dry has begun, 6:00 am. This year the dried lot number will be Natalie 12. Each year we harvest the longest stems for the dried, and this year field Natalie wins! This is the field between our house and goat barn.
The lavender in the vineyard which we distill and allow to fully bloom out, will be glorious next weekend.
And— a great article on Harms Vineyards and Lavender Fields is running in the Napa Register. Check it out!
Visit our Open House next Saturday, June 23, 2012!
