Sunday 23rd August
This week we are now into Virgo season. The sun moved into the sixth sign of the zodiac yesterday afternoon. Virgos are very precise and organised and great at sorting through details. As a gardener I always have to sort, plan and decide what to do with all our produce at this time of year. We often get a glut; at the moment we have loads of courgettes, last week it was cucumbers and we haven’t reached peak tomato yet! In the light of this we are busy pickling, preserving and freezing our veg. Virgos are very industrious , so with both the sun and Mercury in this efficient sign it is a good time to get busy and prepare for the winter months ahead. Cucumber and courgette pickle any one?
