Oxford Bound Bakery, I've started harvesting items with a purpose that I use to do with a hit or miss attitude. For example: my lavendar plants are pretty to look at, attract a lot of bees - to my delight- and occasionally are picked for a few sprigs in a bouquet of flowers or a bunch of heads to cook with.
Monday, however, one of the two medium shrubs received a buzz cut much like the shearing of a lamb! Quantity produced: 21 bunches of drying purple fragrance bundles and a bowl full of leaves and heads also drying and ready to stuff into small sewn pillows for sachets! I was amazed at how much one plant produced.
