Hello everyone! The owner of my best and longest friendship ever – 47 years! – was born August 1st, which is an important day no matter who you are or what you believe. Several family members were born in August as was yet another good friend. And kids go back to school. So the month is special to me for several reasons.
Lammas or Loaf Mass was/is celebrated on this day. For many, especially in agricultural societies around the world, it was First Harvest. And it was a last chance, a last ditch effort to get those quickie crops in the ground that would supplement the harvest over what were harsh winters, no doubt. More on that later… like October.
And, this is the Last Chance to make a comment for the drawing at Midnight on Saturday, August 1st for EyeCandy’s Augustpalooza Art Giveaway. Only three more after this. This has been fun, even if a couple have been delayed and one got TOTALLY off track… what the --???
Speaking of first harvests...
Now, before you laugh, T is inordinately proud of these three little peppers (and how they grew), and the basil is not to be believed… we’ve already been enjoying these fragrant leaves in food and tinctures for other things. Good thing it's all in a pot up on the back deck, otherwise that handsome rascal Buck would make short work of it. Of course, if he got a mouthful of those peppers, he might think twice next time.
Happy birthday, Leon.
