Autumn Planting

Autumn Planting

It was a beautiful morning to pull the last remaining lavender plants from the nursery beds and get them tucked into the greenhouse until next spring when they’ll be transplanted – God willing – into the field where they will be allowed to grow to their full girth and stature and to produce lovely fragrant purple bunches.

The old nursery beds are being turned over to garlic and French shallots this weekend.  Our oldest son, Jack, burned the ‘weeds’ that remained in the beds and the boys are now spreading some of the rich compost made from the bedding material from our goats.

We will have a small supply of scapes, garlic, and shallots next season.
