Many of my fellow pagans have something that’s green and growing. It might be herbs in a kitchen, vegetables in a garden, or maybe flowers on a patio. I have nothing.
Those of us who have no physical crops, focus instead on the symbolism of our goals and how we tend to them through the year.
While I won’t have grains to harvest at Lammas, I take stock in what I’ve accomplished so far, and celebrate whatever came to fruition.
Some pagans create something for the harvests, such as a craft, a poem, a song, or a dance to honor the god/dess’ gifts.
Consider your symbolic crops you’ve planted earlier this year, and be thankful how they’ve grown thus far.
