Hopefully we will be able to put away the flippers and snorkels soon and we will have enough clear skies to get some work done! We are finally planning to open the farm shop on Monday 21st as we ease into the lavender season. We have been growing our lavenders in our polytunnels and they are looking really great so this year we will have plenty of choice to select from again.
We have also taken the precaution of covering some of the lavender with agricultural fleece in the more exposed parts of the field because last year we were hit by a late frost in May that killed all the early emerging flowerheads. Hopefully we will not have to contend with this again this year and the lavender will look as good as it did in 2010.
So roll on the sunshine and we welcome everyone who can make it to visit us.
Lorna and Brendan
