More Autumn Magick to be found in our gardens

 Good Afternoon,

Today we will discuss the magickal properties of more gifts from our Autumn gardens. Today I focus on vegetables rather than flowers, as the magickal vegetable garden is giving us the last of Summer's abundant produce right now.

Corn-

Magickal properties are protection, luck, divination and money or prosperity. Hang a bunch of corn cobs or a wreath with corn cobs interspersed throughout for protection of the home. Hanging corn in bedrooms will protect the sleepers during the night. Blue corn is scattered as an offering to the Gods and Goddesses.


Tomato

The lovely tomato is abundant this time of year, giving us the tastiest and largest choices of the year. There is nothing as wonderful as a late summer tomato. The magickal properties of the tomato is prosperity, protection and love. Give a dish of tomatoes to one you love and the love will be returned. A tasty dish of tomatoes that we make every year around this time is called fried tomatoes. It's more like a tomato soup and very delicious. Here's the recipe:

Fried Tomatoes

Use several large fresh tomatoes right from the garden, rinsed and green stem removed. Then quarter or chunk tomatoes and put in a fry pan over medium heat. Let cook for several minutes until tomatoes have broken down and have made a soup. Chunks of tomato are O.K. Bring to a soft boil. Take off the heat and place several small pats of butter in the hot tomatoes and allow to melt. Stir to mix the melted butter throughout and serve with bread on the side. That's all there is to it! And it's a very tasty way to enjoy fresh tomatoes.

Cabbage-

The cabbage brings luck to a new marriage or relationship. Plant, grow and eat cabbage for luck and good fortune in life. The cabbage is ruled by the moon, it's element is water and it's gender is feminine. Cabbage is very good this time of year in an Irish dish called Colcannon. Here's how you make it.

Colcannon

Heat in a large heavy pan, several boiling potatoes with or without skins. Place into water quarters of cabbage with center stem removed. Bring all to a boil and let boil until potatoes and cabbage are cooked and tender. Place all in a colander and drain of all water. Then place in a large mixing bowl, add plenty of butter, milk and salt to taste and mashed together until all is incorporated.  The cabbage gives the potatoes a sweet taste and the butter makes it a rich and savory dish. No need to wait until St. Patrick's Day to enjoy a dish of Irish Colcannon.

Enjoy!


Peace and Happiness
