Wine & Beer Garden

This festival started years ago as an Art Festival to celebrate the amazing artists in the community as well as the art of nature. So, over the years we have supported various non-profits with Wine & Beer sales. This year we are teaming with the Pacific Northwest Art School (right here in Coupeville). The sales in the garden will go to the school to support their art classes and activities.

The garden is right in front of the stage where the musicians will be playing.

  Lavandula x-intermedia is a hybrid cross between Lav. Angustifolia and Lav. Latifolia. The Lavandula Angustifolias tend to have a high quality but low yielding oil, whereas the Lavandula Latifolias have a poor quality but high yielding oil. So there are quite a lot of hybrid crosses of various varieties of these two lavandulas and [read more…]

Purple Bouquet

Purple Bouquet

Purple Bouquet is AWESOME! It is the variety on the right. Next to it is Hidcote Pink, and to the left of that is Folgate. Purple Bouquet blooms a bit later than the other two so it isn’t quite in its full bloom in this picture. The plant is not very large. This plant is [read more…]

Lavender Wind Dance

Getting ready to open for the season is quite a job. One of our staff members who works on the farm and gets to see the activity and the bird life up close decided to make a video. Enjoy it! Lavenderwind Dance from Elisabetta Bastai on Vimeo.

Hidcote Pink

Hidcote Pink

Hidcote Pink has been available since 1958. It is an average sized lavender with pale pink flowers. In the picture above it is next to rows of Lavendula Angustifolia “Folgate”. Together they make each other pop. Hidcote Pink is a lovely lavender for contrasting with other, purple, lavenders. But, even on its own in a garden [read more…]

Folgate is Blooming

Folgate is Blooming

  Lavandula Angustifolia “Folgate” is the official name of this beauty. Out of 39 species of lavender and over 400 varieties within those species we grow 14 of the commercially on the farm. We have more in our demonstration garden. This variety (Folgate) produces bushes that are quite large for this species: We have just [read more…]

Pesto Rollups

Pesto Rollups

On the farm we grow garlic as well as lavender, so I needed an hors d’oeuvre for a party and wanted to use the garlic scapes (flower stalks) that are so tasty and have a beautiful color. These delightful bites of pesto with a crunch were a hit at the party last night. They are [read more…]

Good Morning

On a fabulously calm Sunday morning on June 7 the temptation to take pictures was overwhelming. So, Here are some pictures for you to enjoy.

Purple is coming!

Purple is coming!

Our earliest blooming lavender variety, Folgate, is almost blooming, but can be maddenly slow. Every June it’s the same… We think it will be blooming and it dawdles. Like a 3 year old on a walk.

Lavender Lemonade

Lavender Lemonade

Is there anything more refreshing and delightful you can think of? Imagine yourself holding a nice glass of lavender lemonade tinkling with frigid ice cubes on a warm day. You raise it and take a cool sip, the refreshing coolness going into your mouth and and on down while you lean back and sigh with [read more…]
