A traditional Heathen ritual is the Charming of the Plow. In this celebration they would make cakes and ask fertility Gods and Goddesses to bless the land and tools with which they were going to work.
I am planning my own Charming of the Plow. I have waited until finishing my garden plan, but I am about there. Soon I shall begin planting various seeds, in accordance with the moon phase in which they will best thrive.
Before planting begins I shall gather my tools, make cakes, call upon Freyr and Freyja, and bless the very Earth I will be cultivating. I am excited to do this as I love gardening. This is only my second year in this house, and my garden will expand dramatically.
