This last weekend was our Celery Feast - the celebration of new foods, the first in the year being the delicious Wild Celery...it tastes like the sun mixed with rain and the color green.
...I started this particular post last week. Celery Feast is a whole week ago and yet the gloriously tiring and exhilarating splendor of the weekend stays with me.
We women who gather the traditional foods gathered early Friday morning and had breakfast together before going out to a remote location where we dug the delicious "first food" wild celery, where we went was cold and windy but there was TONS of celery to be dug and it was an amazing day!
I feel bad that this particular post awaits posting...to finish it off I'll add some pictures from that amazing day...
Because the celery is one of our traditional foods we wear our wingdresses to dig it.
Lunch time is fun although it's usually pretty serious as well with teachings from some of the older women on our first foods.
