Since then I have worked on educating myself about Lavender and its uses -- and there's a lot to learn. Thankfully there are some wonderful websites out there: Mountain Valley Growers,
Millbrook Lavender Farm and Lavender Lake Farms to name a few. We've had several harvests so far, one unattractive pruning (those poor Grosso plants have looked like a dog with a bad haircut for the last few months), tried soap-making, wreath-making, and sachet-making. And I have given lavender bunches to friends, family, neighbors...anyone really. (Everyone knows what they're getting this year for Christmas.) I've also researched essential oil distraction and hope to try this out over the summer as well. The next planting will include more culinary lavender varieties because that opens up a whole other obsession.
