In the spring of 2021,
I decided to start some seeds to grow my own indigo (Persicaria tinctoria).
Happily, my first foray into the magical world of this centuries-old indigo dye production went well. In summer of 2022, I grew more plants and learned how to extract the blue dye and store it. Life is full of magical gifts and surprises!
After a number of dips in the dye bath, I can begin to see the shades of blue jeans!
