November Harvest

November is upon us and we are getting our last harvest of the few herbs that flower late into fall. The crop that blooms the latest is our Salvia Leucantha (Mexican Sage). The deep purple velvety flower spikes dry well and add great color to many of our wreaths. It will continue to flower until about mid November, when we will go through and do our final cutting. Marjoram is another herb that flowers into late fall. We will get our last cutting of marjoram before the weather turns too cold. Our warm weather in late October allowed us to get these late harvests. Our herbs will be mixed with different greenery to create some of our holiday wreaths, while the majority are stored for spring and summer use.
