sounds to me by all your descriptions of your area that if you were to give the state of Kansas an enema, your zip code would be the spot.
We all feel for you, but some of us are getting over it...

Someday I'm going to Provence so I can fulfill my fantasy of sitting in a Lavender field.
Either Provence or w-sw KS once they get to growing it there.
It does well in warm dry climates.
The best soil mixture for lavender has a alkaline ph between 7.0-8.0 and mimics its natural growing conditions. Lavender likes sandy, gravelly, rocky almost poor soil (NOT the rich black type we all want in our vegetable gardens.) Keep this important fact in mind when growing lavender or you will have more than a few problems with your plants.

a search says lavender is harvested by hand........
If it takes the place of wheat we can provide work for the mellinials..... in other words the young who have lost the illusion of a career that lasts more than 5 years.
