Katie, Jen and I had the taken the challenge to harvest lavender for school. Today we ventured out to The Lavender Farm in Ayr, Ontario to harvest approximately 200 grams of lavender each. Here are some photos of our day.

Katie and I hard at work. We need approximately 200 grams to make 2x500ml of tincture.
Working hard in the very very hot sun! Thank goodness for my hat.
Katie had the right idea! Sticking to the shade.
We tried very hard to get to the spikes before the bees pollinated them.
Katie, Jen and I reconnecting and chatting.
