Workers were busy harvesting lavender at Graysmarsh Farm this week. Soon bundles will scent cars and luggage as our visitors head home after this weekend’s Lavender Festival. Some farms pre-pick bundles for lavender lovers and some are harvesting the herb to dry or distill it for lotions, soaps and essential oil.
Professionals harvest and shape the bushes at the same time.
These bundles were waiting at Jardin du Soleil last week. Lavender bouquets typically run $5 to $6.
