Bake something holy and yummy with flour, like breads and savory cookies. This harvest (for me) is all about the grains and starches. Next comes fruits and veggies (pumpkins, apples, ect.), then the bloody bits on Halloween. But that's just how I see the 3 harvests.

I make ceramic art and am currently taking commissions. Have dream altar ware you\'ve always wanted, or a statue for a deity or spirit that you could never find? PM or email me and I\'ll see what I can do ;)

Same here. The grain harvest at Lammas, the fruit&veg harvest at Mabon and the meat harvest at Samhain.

Bake bread, make pies (savoury or sweet), go for a picnic, light candles, burn incense, make a corn dolly...etc.

Personally, I'm hopefully going for a picnic on the beach if the weather's nice :cool:

Well usually Lammas is celebrated as a harvest festival :) So harvesting any herbs you might have grown, cook breads, make corn dollies, offerings of grains.

Im going to try and do some baking which will be fun, and make some corn dollies.

I've heard of something - although I don't know the truth of it - that this also used to be a time of year for fixing contracts and settling legal disputes (at least in England - more seasonal than religious, because the roads were dry after summer and the best for travelling).  So it might be a suitable time if you had any rituals or spells in mind relating to justice, rights or partnership working, or perhaps your career...

Raffia also works well, and is easily found at craft stores.
