Lammas - First Harvest

The wheel is turning again and we reach the month of August.  Traditionally this marks the festival of Lammas or the celebration of the first Harvest - there's more information about the festivals on the The Goddess and The Green Man website as well as lots of other sources out there for those that are interested in such things. For me it's a chance to pause and think about what we are growing, what we might want to grow in the future and which seeds we want to save for next year (yes I still make such plans).It's also a chance to be grateful that we have the space to grow our own.
This year it has also, wonderfully, coincided with the first ripe tomatoes from our garden plants - just 3 but hopefully there will be a few more in the next couple of days so that I can incorporate them into the weekend's meals.

Happy Harvest.
