Lammas, or Lughnasadh, has come and gone. Here in western Maine Lammas is a very appropriate holiday for the season. Strawberries were previously harvested, blueberries and blackberries are currently being picked, and many items from the garden have already been partaken of.
We’ve been experiencing a bit of a drought and it’s been interesting to explore water-harvesting techniques.
My word…I just realized how many times I used the term “harvest.” Well there. For some, in other parts of the country or the world, the idea of First Harvest may not exactly correspond with their weather/season. Here, it does.
The days are shortening, and though we still have times of high heat, the weather is slowly starting to shift. We ask that rains come to nourish our plants and to fill our wells. Nights are becoming more comfortable, and sitting around a bonfire is a pleasure rather than a sauna-experience.
A blessed Harvest-season to all….whatever your “crop” may be 🙂
