Today I harvested, among other things, Melissa officinalis, commonly called lemon balm.
This first harvest of Melissa will become a Melissa Ale.
Her leaves were stripped, just under a pound, and prepared for the freezer.
She will be delicious.
I also paused this day of MidSummer to anoint my chakras with the morning dew … to read Shakespeare to the trees … to create a tool for myself and a gift for the unsuspecting … I journaled … I spoke my Truth to the rooted ones, to the faint breeze, to the moon, to the sun … I chilled a dusty bottle of rhubarb mead to be imbibed with The Boy as we share a Solstice meal this evening.
That's what I made today. Peace.
