Lammas

Today is Lammas, the first of three harvest festivals to Celtic pagans. It’s also called Lughnasad after the sun God Lugh. We celebrate the holidays generally in our backyard with my circle. I didn’t take any people photos for some reason just a few altar shots.

With the first harvest I have also made strawberry jam, rasbperry-blackberry infused vodka, lavender syrup used in lavender lemonade, some kohlrabi saurkraut that I am experimenting with, mugwort and skullcap tinctures (herbs in vodka to steep for two weeks or so) and then bread. Our traditional God bread as we call it was made by our bread artist yesterday! Our newest family that we have crossed paths with made a honey cake with a raspberry filling.
