Recipe: Rosemary grows so well in Portland that I feel like it is almost on every corner. This bush was bigger than a cow, maybe the size of two cows. I clipped half a basket full (also was harvesting Black Eye Susans) and dyed about 50 grams. A bright and vibrant dye with the added bonus of a dye pot that smells amazing.
