Garden picked lavender, honey, blueberries and almond milk popsicles were the first garden to table, eatable flower recipe I created, and now make them every summer.

Eating Gifts From My Garden

Garden Lavender

If you know me, you know I am a late-in-life rookie gardener. On this particular year I wanted to try my hand at an ‘Herb de Provence’ garden.

I have an area in my yard that backs up to a wooded area and the deer usually make regular visits. 

I wasn’t sure how a garden of herbs would do there or if everything would get eaten; not that I mind feeding them, but I too wanted to enjoy my garden.

It worked! I planted herbs around the edge of the garden that deer don’t like the smell of and planted the other herbs in the center. 

I am so excited to see and smell the intoxicating aromas of lavender, rosemary and other herbs.

Everyday, throughout the growing season, the butterflies and bees come to visit and yes… They are most welcome!

Blueberry Popsicles

Since my four children were little, now grown with families of their own, I made them homemade fruit popsicles. 

Strawberries, of course, were always a hit since they are especially juicy, and both sweet and tart.

But blueberries? Not so much. In fact, as much as I eat blueberries year round, like in my Homemade Granola and Yogurt for most breakfasts, they really aren’t very sweet or juicy. 

So I decided to try a blueberry popsicle with a lovely floral flavor from an eatable flower to see if it enhanced the taste. 

In honor of the bees, that keep my garden happy all summer, I knew I would put honey in the popsicles instead of sugar.

Making Lavender and Blueberry Popsicles

Oh My! Aromatic, sweet and very purple popsicles are the result of just a few fresh ingredients, now a favored popsicle with my grandchildren. 

Making Lavender and Blueberry Popsicles

Making these popsicles couldn’t be easier. There is nothing to cook and all you will need is a blender or food processor, some popsicle molds and patience while they freeze over night. 

Toss everything into the blender, give it a whirl until the berries puree, pour into popsicle molds and the next day you will have beautiful purple popsicles, loaded with nutrients and flavor.

Call me old fashioned but I love to taste the gifts from my garden!
