The cycle begins anew! This week we pulled our first harvest out of the vanillery, officially starting the 2021 harvest season.
This year is slightly later than most , typically we see our first harvest in the first week or two of January. The harvest season typically goes until late April, so it’s a full 4 months of going into the vanillery to harvest 3 times a week. This year we are expecting a smaller harvest than last year. There were not as many flowers…not sure why but the crowding in the vanillery could be one factor.
