I love the smell of lavender and this week I got to go out to a lavender farm and cut my own. I've cut lavender before, but it's always been the lavender from my house or the house of a friend or family member. This was my first time at a farm.
We went to Lavender Hill Farm on Vashon Island in the Puget Sound. There are 20 kinds of lavender at the farm, but because we went towards the end of the season, most of the lavender has already bloomed and been cut.
This didn't bother us though and we walked down the hill to some of the lavender and began to cut. The bees were everywhere but they didn't seem to mind us.
A bunch of lavender is the amount you can fit between your thumb and index finger when you touch them together. And a bunch of lavender was $5.
We didn't see the secret garden, but we did go in the farm store and look at what they were selling.
It was a very cute place and I had fun going with my friends. Have you ever been to a u-cut lavender farm?
