Growing stuff, Six Word Saturday Published on February 22, 2014 Comments 12 Six Word Saturday written by Clare at CatsEatDogs Today was warm enough to give the soil in this raised bed a little dig over. In the Spring, I plan to fill it up with lavender, our own mini lavender farm! Happy Weekend.

I really like this concept! Good luck with the lavender!
Thanks! I look forward to a summery photo full of lavender.
Lavender is the best!
I know, I hope I manage to grow lots and keep it all alive!
I’ve never had much luck with lavender. I hope it flourishes for you.
I know what you mean, I am no green fingered gardener, fingers crossed!
I am jealous! My soil is still covered by two feet of snow! 🙂
I am so over snow now, we might still get more.
I have a lavender garden, too! after I dry them, I put them in baby food jars & place them in a dark place-closet. I then put them in the container part of my vacuum, the exhaust from the vacuum smells yummy. I also put some in cheese cloth bags & put them in my closets, draws & linen closet. I love it so much, that I’ve bought lavender oil & put it on my air filter. I buy lavender cleaning products (meyers’) & candles…so my whole house smells (to visitors, we are used to it) like lavender. sorry for babbling. Have a wonderful harvest. ~amy
Great ideas Amy, thanks for the great ideas. I love the vacuum one, I use lavender cleaning products too. I really hope I can grow a whole raised bed full of lavender.
Here is what i’ve learned, there are different types, that like different things. I sort of mixed them up when I planted them in the dirt. If one seemed to be dying, I would dig it up & plant it in a different place, this seems to work well. Once they are happy, you better get out of the way, they grow so big & beautiful! ~amy
Good tips, I do want happy plants!
