Rose Moon

The Rose Moon (also called the Strawberry Moon or, in some cultures, ” The Moon of Making Fat”) is the time of year when the Roses start to bloom. It is also the time of year when the Strawberries are at their ripest. It is the time of year when the Suckling Pigs and the Broilers and Fryer Chickens are ready for eating fresh or frozen for a later date.
