where my lavender lovers at?! I’ve got an incredibly easy lavender coconut iced coffee recipe on deck for you that I’m betting you’re gonna fall hard for 😍
since we travel so much during the summer, sadly, we don’t end up growing a lot of food in our garden. but my little food loving heart has a plan to some day either;
a) travel less and be around to tend to the garden
b) invest in an irrigation system to do the work for us while we take off to dance barefoot in the grass and sleep under the stars
I’m guessing the second option is more likely since who want’s to give up a summer full of camping + music + road trips? not this girl.
but until that happens we do have a few plants that don’t take much caring for that we get to harvest around this time of year. there’s a couple of blueberry bushes (the birds got most of them this year, though.. sigh. 🙄), several raspberry bushes, some herbs and of course, lavender.
it was my one request when my honey was planting out our backyard. there’s something about the flowers that make me so happy – plus I love using them in the kitchen, and they attract so many honey bees! hosting some lavender bushes in our yard makes me feel like I’m doing something good to help those little guys out.
last year the plants were too small to really put out many flowers, but this summer they literally tripled in size and I couldn’t wait to harvest them and turn them into something delicious.
👉🏼 that’s where this easy lavender coconut iced coffee comes into the picture.
