June 2 — Falaley-Borage Day (Leontia). Cucumbers must be sown in secret from the neighbors!

CrimeaPRESS reports:

Falaley’s Day was also called — Falaley Teplovey, Borage, Alexy’s Day, Gryadochnik, Falaley Warm … June 2, people believed, is the most favorable time for planting cucumbers in open ground. As a rule, the day was exceptionally warm and people prayed to the gods, asking them to send heavy rains, so that they could then harvest a rich harvest. And they sowed cucumbers in secret from the neighbors! The very first grown vegetable was buried in the garden, offering it as a “sacrifice” to the saints — they believed that in this case a lot of cucumbers would grow.

The Church now honors the memory of the martyrs Asterius, Alexander and Thalalea, whose life is dated 284 year. These people suffered for their faith in Christ — they were subjected to severe torture and killed, having cut off their heads. By the way, the youngest Falaley at that time was 18 years old.

In addition, June 2 marks the uncovering of the relics of St. Metropolitan Alexy of Moscow, a famous Russian miracle worker. The event occurred in 1431 year.

The signs for today are as follows:

  • If it rains, it will be sunny all summer.
  • Rain on June 2 — snowfalls will begin in December.
  • Are there many cones on the trees? There will be a good harvest of cucumbers and gooseberries.
  • If there is a lot of dew in the evening, the next day will be sunny.
  • Ducks continuously splash and dive — to the rain.
  • Rainbow in the morning — wait for the rain.
  • High clouds slowly float across the sky — to good weather.
  • The sun has set in a cloud — to bad weather.
  • Is it stuffy and warm in the evening? By the rain.
  • Starflower flowers did not open until 9 o’clock in the morning — it will rain in the afternoon.
