we harvested our rose buds to make rose chains.

we harvested rose petals to make rose apple cider vinegar, rose honey, and rose water.
to make rose honey and rose vinegar, simply fill a quart jar to the top with rose petals,
and pour in your carrier.
here august is mixing in the honey.
here is rose petals in ACV (apple cider vinegar)

here are a few rose chains dried

these are decorative and will just be draped around to remind us of early summer.

what will you harvest next?  my raspberries and black currants are on.  gotta go pick!

i'll be back soon with many more posts, including one about the amazing World Domination Summit that i attended over the weekend in portland, oregon.  it was a-mazing!

hugs, kisses and berry juice fingers,

  2. I was in your shop today (we asked if there was a bakery around) and knew we had much in common. I attended WDS this year also. It was amazing wasn't it. Love love love your store and am thoroughly enjoying your blog. We didn't make it to M&M. The child and pup had been stretched to their limits for the day. Looking forward to checking it out sometime soon. Will you be going to WDS again?
