The fields are nearly empty, because the crops have been
plucked and stored for the coming winter.
It is a time of giving thanks for the things we have,
whether it is abundant crops or other blessings.
It is a time of apples, pomegranates and plums.....
Perhaps the best known of all the harvest mythologies is
the story of Demeter and Persephone.
Demeter was a goddess of grain and of the harvest in ancient Greece.
