We still haven't had a hard frost (although I think it's imminent) and Charlotte said 'it was my lucky day' I could come and 'take it all' although I do not think it's possible...but i try!
Charlotte helps me will the back of my car and talk about dye gardens. Her idea, a great one is to collaborate with the Textile Center and create a dye garden on site 'killing two birds'. What a great project for next summer.
My favorite discovery- dahlias. Meaty, bright and the best color yet. Amaranth- so much to use. After a little reading, i find that amaranth is a grain you can eat, a fiber to make paper with and...with this much- it must create good color. I think I make several dye batches, freeze some and dry out the rest of the stalks to use later.
