According to Celtic Mythology the God of Lugh of the Tuatha Dé Dannan established the festival of Lughnasa. Traditionally it marks the beginning of the harvest season - The day the first meal of the new crops were eaten.
It is also known as Domhnach Chrom Dubh and Garland Sunday and is often celebrated in rural Ireland on the closest Sunday to the 31st July / 1st August.
I missed last month's Garden Post, so today is the perfect day to share some of our garden fare.
This evening we will eat from the garden and give praise to the bounty she offers up to us each season -
Happy Harvest Season.
