July Giveaway

What a busy month!  I keep cutting and cutting but the lavender field still looks full!  We've been vending at some local farmers markets and having lots of fun.  The shoppers walk buy and you can see their faces when they first get a whiff of our stall!  They look around to see where the scent is coming from, and you can see their faces brighten when they say, "Lavender".

We'll be shipping fresh bundles for about 2 more weeks.  When the bundles are past their prime for shipping fresh, they will all go into the drying room in the barn.  When they're dry, we'll strip the buds and have plenty of bulk dried buds for the coming year.  If you'd like a fresh bundle, don't delay!  Click here to see our lavender products.

One lucky reader won't have to order a bundle--- they'll win one!  This will be a short giveaway- just about a week to enter.  I'll draw the winner on Friday, July 23rd.  The winner, chosen at random, will receive a fresh bundle of lavender (as shown above) via priority mail.  I generally open my giveaways to international readers, but the lavender can only be shipped domestically.  So... for this giveaway.... entrants have to have a U.S. mailing address.  If you don't live in the U.S. but have a friend in the U.S. you would like to give it to if you win, then feel free to enter.

For one entry, reply to THIS post and just let me know you want a chance to win.
For a second entry, be a follower of my blog (already a follower or sign up as a new follower).
For a third entry, of you have your own blog, let your readers know about my giveaway.

It's that easy!  Good luck!

I love fresh lavendar. What a wonderful giveaway.

You know how they have Dude Ranches? Have you ever considered having Lavendar Ranches? I think it would be fun to go to a ranch and help harvest lavendar. I may be wrong, but I think there are many others that would love to do so too. Think about it. This might be a nitch to help people(quilters) have a fun vacation, and for you to get some help!

I was almost tempted to beg you for a snippet of lavender, even!

LOL

And yes, we live fairly close to the US border and I have a mailing address there.

TRUST ME - your lavender bouquet would be put to good use! *grin*

I'm pleased your cutting your lavender as I have started to cut mine now. I have a friend your side of the pond who would love this, and I can't think of a nicer picture to put on Soggibottom blog to tell everyone about your giveaway.
x x x I think if I were let lose in your lavender field I would think I had died and gone to heaven.

I am dealing with living with lupus and the scent of lavender seems ti calm my soul. I do like the idea of a farm or ranch of pure fragrant lavender. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

On my bucket list - to walk through a field of lavender, of all the herbs, my favorite and so difficult to winter over here in Northern Wisconsin.

Your bouquet would be such a treasure! And lavender stands for loyalty if I recall.

SewLindaAnn said...

I LOVE fresh lavender. I really like SewCalGal's idea of the ranch. Look how great Mary Jane Butters did!

SewLindaAnn said...

I'm a follower. I have 3 plants at my mailbox, I need to look up when to "harvest". Although, I'd have to get past the bundle of bees. After digging into a yellow jacket nest underground and suffering the consequences, I'll probably leave them alone and buy some!

NurseStudent said...

I would love to have the opportunity to send my mom in Texas this delightful treat! If I don't win, I will still be buying a bunch! Best of luck to everyone! Thanks Sue, what a lovely gesture! Fingers crossed x

Mmm...lavendar would make my studio smell wonderful. I had a tiny patch in my garden, but as dry and hot as it's been, it's rather crunchy now.
