Fruit and Vegetables of the month: May

We welcome «Ceasar» or the «Green» month, May!

From the very first day, we flee to the country side, where we enjoy the sun, spring and nature, making flower wreaths, or «Maywreaths». These traditional wreaths will be burnt at the fires of Saint Giannis on June 24th. Until that day, they will adorn the doors and porches of those whose houses «caught May.»

The fertility and flowering of the land is celebrated in May – our ancestors honored the freshness of the land with festivals dedicated to various god, as well as, nature. We welcome May with wreaths and strolls in nature, placing baskets full of delicious snacks atop of sheets that have been carefully spread on top of grass.

Let’s see the fresh fruits and vegetables that this month brings us, so that we can enjoy them with recipes and strolls in the countryside!

Have a great month from all of us at Horio!
