2018 Sideritis Harvest
Due to weather conditions we started harvesting in the first week of June. April was very hot, causing the plants to mature earlier than usual. There was only a small time frame to gather in the harvest; there is a considerable chance of rain showers at that time of the year having a detrimental effect to the quality. However, we were lucky!
After selection the plants were chopped to a standard size, dried on nets, adequately stored in cartons and finally moved to the warehouse (few words but lots of work!). The image shows the plant whole and short the latter being also the basis for the chopped variant.
