Lavender photo by Anja BierI often pick up lavender gifts at the Los Poblanos Inn farm shop, but this is a whole other way of picking up some lavender!

We all know Los Poblanos is famous for its gorgeous organic lavender, made into soaps, salves, and potions for hair and skin. This week you can Pick your own lavender at Los Poblanos Inn and Organic Farm for $8 a bundle. Hours are from 9 am to 5 pm, through Sunday July 8, 2012.

They provide scissors and rubber bands, you just turn up and pick, and no advance registration is needed. Whether you consider $8 a bundle cheap or not, might depend on how much of a lavender fan you are, but I often see dried bunches of lavender costing that much or more, and fresh lavender is so much lovelier – you can always dry it yourself.  I’m also not sure how big the bundles are (so if you get there before me, let us know!) but it sure sounds like a fragrant way to spend an hour roaming in the lavender field!

Los Poblanos Inn & Organic Farm is located at 4803 Rio Grande Boulevard NW, Los Ranchos de Albuquerque.
