Within this time of life, this pregnant pause as we wait for crops to ripen, the nights begin again to slip in. Even within all this life is a reminder of death. What I love about celebrating the year cyclically is that no day is alone, each festival links to the next, reminds us that the only constant is change. And while this can be daunting, it can also be freeing. As the smoke makes the moon a little too yellow, this too shall pass.

As always I would love to hear all your comments and suggestions. How do you use your garden's weeds? What are your favourite Rose Petal recipes?  Let me know here.

Scrap Kitchen aims to bring low-waste, weed-using, climate-adaptive recipes and thoughts direct to your inbox every Monday. Sign up today.
