I started a package of lavendar seeds 2 years ago so I could dry my sheets and cases like Grandma used to. She draped them over her large lavendar bushes. The sun and lavendar smell put you to sleep immediately and seemed to give wonderful dreams. They are big enough now (planted in a 8'x8' grid) that I'm drying small things on them. Next year it will be my big sheets. I also love drying my kitchen towels, wash cloths, and napkins on my rosemary bushes. They smell grand!
