Lavender harvestAnd the Caveat…

I know this looks like a lot, but consider you are talking with someone who once grew 27 varieties of garlic. It is all relative: crazy by some measures; by others, just the tip of the branch. I admit I tend to get a little obsessed with plants, because they are simply so amazing. In reality, though (so as not to give you the wrong impression), we are not huge herb farm operation; we are just a little back acre horticultural experiment.

At one time, we were growing over 100 varieties of herbs. Life being what it is, I had to scale back at one point, which was difficult in light of all the wonderful and unusual herbs that can grow in our climate. However, in recent years, with the development of the “food forest” and the focus on gardening for bees and other pollinators, we are bringing back many of our favorites, and it looks like we are actually topping our previous head count. The above list is incomplete – we are adding more all the time. Plus, we are making cuttings, dividing, collecting seeds, harvesting, drying, making tinctures and salves.
