Latest Word from the Dye Garden

DSCN1310Our Dye Garden coordinator, C.J. Cardinale reports that “I was at the dye garden today and we have a lot of blooms already. I started harvesting the Dyer’s Coreopsis, which has such a pretty red center.  I freeze some each time I go to the garden and we will have plenty for a nice dyepot in the fall, which yields a stunning red orange. The St. John’s Wort is starting to bloom and the Dyer’s Chamomile is also sending up nice yellow flowers.  The Perilla reseeded itself.” Contact C.J. if you’re “dyeing” to know more.
