Lavender Giveaway

July 5, 2011

I’m still recovering from the Fourth of July dessert course.  And I still don’t have a working refrigerator (more on that later this week).  

I also have a serious bee problem because I have a ton of lavender on my property, which means my kids resist playing outside, and because I need my kids to play outside for their welfare and my sanity, I have decided that today is the day that I will definitely harvest all that remains of my French lavender.

This is just the beginning.

And because there is just no way that I can keep all, here’s my proposal.  I’ll harvest it and giveaway fresh bundles this week.  Would you like some? 

I’ll fill a USPO medium flat rate box with several bunches of French lavender and ship it to five people later this week (randomly selected by  Giveaway ends tonight at midnight PST.

Simply leave a comment to be eligible to win some.

Bee back soon  (couldn’t resist).

    Me me me! Pick me!
    Why don’t you have your own bees to harvest their honey? Lavender honey is the bee’s knees! ;) Supposedly if you provide them with enough food, water, and shelter, they won’t bother you (or your kids). But not having a yard or kids of my own, i understand any hesitation.
