Aren’t they lovely?  I love dyeing with indigo, but I haven’t done it since I left college.  I’m really really excited to try it straight from the plant (fully prepared for lesser results!), and play with some different, more organic vat recipes instead of the chemical vat that we used at school.

So far, this is the most informative website I’ve found about it (really, the most informative website I’ve found about any plant, period).

I can’t wait until this doggone cold spell ends and I can get these pretties in the ground!
