Habondia

The Day's Picking.

Roll Call, in no particular order: artemisia, chili peppers, basil (curly and Genovese), sweet bell peppers, bright lights chard, a three pound zucchini, two white "nest egg" gourds, yellow pole beans, "scarlet bees" runner beans, the Second Carrot, a pile of green tomatoes, red leaf lettuce, a spray of pink roses that we think are the root stock of something "else" planted a while ago but it's cheerful; white sunflowers, dwarf sunflowers, tithonia, blue salvia (farinacia), a California poppy, lobelia and calendula, white strawberries, alpine strawberries.

 

Habondia is the goddess from whose name comes Abundance; another name for Lammas or Loaf-mas, celebrated at the beginning of August, the first of the harvest festivals of the northern hemisphere.
