One of my jobs this weekend was strip off some of the foliage from my massive tomato plants in the polytunnel so the light can reach the fruit so they will ripen. I also had to cut off the new flowers which will never come to fruition to lighten the load on the plants. Mission was accomplished and hopefully they are all set to ripen now!!!
This also made me think of this time of Late Summer Harvest generally and that if we want to make the most of the harvesting energy it is time to pare down our activities and focus on what we want to bring to fruition; the Late Summer is usually a short season so time is of the essence.
In our group Seasonal Goddess Day to Day on a Monday we start by setting our intentions for the week, small achievable goals for the week ahead so every week we can have some harvest whatever the season.
So this week if you have a project to finish, something that you really want to 'harvest' set time aside to give it focused attention and put other activities, that aren't ready to be harvested, on pause (very Earth element too).
Happy harvesting! lots of love Carol xx ...and if you fancy joining our group here is the link :)
