Record Harvest this year!

We  have had a record harvest around here this year. An insane amount of mint, lavender, beans, calendula, giant sunflowers, potatoes, tomatoes, greens, pizza spices (rosemary, thyme, oregano), and more. Learning how to harvest and collect from the garden in preparation for fall & winter (and spring!) is an important skill. Check this crazy amount of beans!dsc_0558

Should we save beans for next year or make tacos???!?! These are a colored assortment of scarlet runners, black beans, & pole beans.

This is an entire fall/winter of mint tea right here w/ a healthy amount of lavender for the Harvest Festival and/or lavender oil.

We walked down the street to the Brandon Street Orchard and harvested a fair amount of rosemary & lavender. Community harvesting!
