The full moon in July marks the peak of growth for most of our aromatic herbs, thus, it is the Wort Moon. Now is when we engage our wortcunning, harvesting and preparing our herbs for use all year- with incredible gratitude. Again, we don't necessarily harvest today. It depends on the weather and other factors, but right around now is when we're out there with the hand scythe, cutting culinary and medicinal herbs for our year's stock, spreading them on the drying screens, and setting up fresh tinctures and oils to be used later. I know, tradition says June, but whoever made up that tradition didn't live here.
