Freeze update

In April, a hard freeze in the teens killed much new growth on our lavender plants (see blog entry below). We decided to prune off the dead growth, and allow sunlight to reach into the plants. We think we made the right move -- more new growth is appearing. We think harvest will be less than it would have been, and later, but the plants will recover.

In this photo below, there's lots of growth on the perimeter, and some from the center of the plant, coming off the old growth.

And below is a close-up of the center of the plant. It'll be fine.
