Lammas, also known as Lughnasadh [loog’-na-sod] is the mid summer and the start of the harvest. Celebration to the Sun God for His help with the fertility of the Earth and He begins to wane in the sky. However, His seeds are in Mother Earth and She is at Her peak. Fruits and vegetables are ripened and herbs are at their most potent at this time. We reap the fruits of Her labor and know that we are blessed by all of Mother Earth’s bounty.
