Lavender picking has been a tradition of mine for the last few years! I love picking lavender bundles to cook with, use dried around the house for decoration and just to smell while it’s fresh! Lavender is known for it’s soothing aroma and picking at a farm is just the most relaxing experience.
My favorite place to visit locally is Mountainside Lavender. They have an amazing view of the mountains and make me feel like I have left Oregon and journeyed to France in an afternoon. They have English and French varieties at the farm. I have about 15 plants at my home garden and after growing English, French and Spanish varieties, I have decided French is my favorite. I love the thin leaves and the tall stems of flowers.
I hope that everyone gets a chance to enjoy lavender season and gets to experience the soothing experience of farm picking and home growing!
