It’s 20 days into the New Year and my resolution was to update my blog and at least keep it up to date once a week. I’ll try to keep the last 6 months short and sweet.
We would like to thank the Spafford Garden Club (SAGE) and Skaneateles Garden Club for inviting me to present a workshop on growing, harvesting and drying lavender. Everyone had the opportunity to harvest from our 15 varieties of lavender and learn how to make lavender wands. We enjoyed our experience to educate the public at the New York State Fair on the benefits of growing lavender.
Harvesting soy beans, wheat, sunflowers and lavender went off without a hitch...fingers intact. And after 2 weeks of painting, the barn is done...phew. No wonder I don’t have time to keep up with my blog.
In December we lost a beloved family member and important part of our farm. Our Australian Cattle dog, Maia lived 15 loving, productive years. At the end of her life she could still herd the sheep with just a bark from the porch. It’s been a month and I still look for her when I come home from work.
So that’s the last 6 months in a nutshell. Writing this blog is a gift to myself. This resolution I will keep.
