      Thanks Alli, I admit I’m hooked on Lavender, I just propagated a whole bunch of varieties in the fall in hopes to plant more in spring. Believe it or not, I’m making another two loaves right now! They freeze really well. I just slice them, pop them into a ziplock and into the freezer so I can just take a few frozen pieces with me for breakfasts on the road. Such a treat!ReplyCancel
