SLPS met on Saturday, July 2, 2016 at 9pm to honor the goddess of America, Columbia. The altar was decorated with Independence Day decorations (for July 4th). Pomegranate wine and apricots off one of the society trees were offered. Stars and Stripes Forever, one of the most patriotic American marches by John Philip Sousa was played as members danced around the altar with flags and pinwheels. We asked the Goddess to watch over the USA, guide the political leaders to be favorable for civil liberties, and offered thanks to the Native Americans who continue to grant the white people favorable passage on their lands (i.e, the USA).

The society garden is growing strong! A month and a half of growing and many of the plants have bushed, vined, and stalked. Only a couple were lost, one cucumber, one corn, one pepper plant, and some onions. All in all, not so bad! The loss mainly may be due to the gophers or bad starters.

Peppers are coming in, vines on the watermelons and pumpkins have taken off, lettuce is growing high, squash is bushing, corn stalks are about 2 feet high and already show tassels, and onions are getting thick. The society is blessed with many plants and few pests!
