Lavender Harvest

Ever since my mother made a delicious batch of home-made lavender ice cream a few years ago, I have been addicted to lavender in all its culinary glory. So you can imagine how excited I was to participate in a lavender harvest last weekend at Sunrise Ridge Gardens in west Sonoma County -- a seven acre permaculture garden that grows heirloom fruits, berries, and french lavender. We spent the afternoon cutting, bundling, and hanging the lavender for the following weekend's farmer's market, and will be returning next weekend to learn how to distill the lavender to make essential oils!
