Having a Gardening with the Moon Calendar is like having an extra set of hands when planting. Sometimes, we need all the help we can get. Between rain drops, cold weather and all the other weather related issues, we often just beg for HELP!
This kind of trouble calls for an expert – and the best ‘expert’ I know is the Man in the Moon!
As gardeners, do everything in our power to grow a healthy garden. We make compost and add it to the soil. We gather the best seeds to start then bump each seedling up to its own container. They are watered, nurtured and then hardened off. Once in the garden, we stake, weed, train, and water. There are days the weather is not our friend, but we work around it.
Some years are great. Others make us wonder if we will even get one tomato to enjoy. And more times than not, we question if there is anything else we could be doing to help insure a healthy harvest. There is. Try Gardening with the Moon phases and signs.
Moon Phases & Signs
The Moon Phases and Signs affect the growing habits of plants the same way it affects the tides- through gravitational pull. The first and second quarter phases are great for above ground plants, and the third and fourth quarter are best for root crops.
Using the phases alone can be beneficial. But toss in astronomical signs, such as Libra and Leo, and you will learn which ones are best for growing conditions and which ones are better suited to maintenance other than planting.
This Gardening with the Moon Calendar lists the signs and elements, as well as what to plant each day. There are notations on when there will be a Full and New Moon as well as Barren Days.
