September On The Farm

Monday afternoon while walking around the farm, I decided to take a few pictures to share...things are slowing down as Fall is approaching.
Our shed is so quite after the June Harvest Celebration...but still much LOVED!
We are reseeding part of the lawn in front of the house.
Different views of the lavender field...
We love to keep chairs near the field for rest after weeding AND to sit and enjoy watching the bee's visit each and every plant all summer long.
Our big, beautiful and extremely productive lavender plants.
Another view of the house and shed from the lavender field.
These plants are the oldest two on our farm...they are around 10 years old and still holding on strong. Hooray for the lavender grandparents!!
Nice picture of the skies darkening as evening approaches.

Thank you for taking this quick fall view of Sunshine Lavender Farm. I promise to post more pictures as fall turns into winter. We have been promised LOTS for this snow this winter!!


  1. Quick question for y'all, since I consider you the lavender-growing experts of the Southeast! We are in Upstate South Carolina and are adding a small plot of lavender to our farm this fall. What kind of landscape fabric do you use? I've been looking at the stuff at Lowe's and Home Depot, but yours looks tougher--like the industrial quality you see in large commercial greenhouses. Could you recommend a source for that? Thanks so much, and I love reading your blog! :)

    1. Hi Em! Thanks for your question...the answer is that the black fabric which covers the paths between the lavender rows on the farm are from

      Hope this helps! Send us some pictures of your progress and finished garden at

      Thanks so much!!
