Lammas blessings

Published August 1, 2017 by Lunapo

Lammas, loaf mass, is the first harvest in Northern Europe. But it’s still rather hot here and I am certainly not ready to look forward to the autumn. At least not until I return to work…

So, we are honoring the spirit of Lammas with baking galore, and including elements of the first harvest like honey and berries. 

Lemon blueberry bread- it’s super yummy!

Honey wheat bread

And, to top it all off, I decided to go with another loaf for dinner!

Turkey meatloaf!

Tonight at our table, I will be conducting the following ritual:

It’s the height of the summer. It is the time of the first harvest, when berries, honey, corn, and wheat are at their peak. 

Fruits are at their sweetest. 

What is your favorite summer fruit?

Solarly, the days have been growing shorter since Midsummer, but there is still plenty of warm sunlight where we are and lots of summer fun to be had. 

What has your favorite part of the summer been?

What are you still looking forward to doing before the weather turns cold?

The times of harvest are times for extra thanks to the farmers who tend to our crops. Who sow the seeds, care for the plants, and pick the parts to be eaten, then till the remainder back into the earth. 

Cheers to our farmers. 

Hail to Sif, Lady of the grain. 

Hair to Thor, whose storms give water to the crops. 

Hail to their union, making bounty each year and allowing us to be fed.
