Planting by the Moon

Whether it was the Babylonians timing their harvests by the sign the Moon traveled through, or the farmers of Eastern Europe watching each moonphase for the best time to plant, our celestial companion has always been a divine indicator of the seasons for growth. My Irish Grandfather always read his Farmer's Almanac to see when the moon was in Cancer or Libra to time the planting of flowers and vegetables--he placed great trust in the power of the Moon over his crops, and was rewarded each month with a healthy and bountiful harvest. I took my cue from him, and have been able to grow tomatoes and peppers up until late November, and been complimented many times on the beauty of my flowers!

This popular poster is an excellent reference to keep in your kitchen to remind you of when to plant and what tasks are best during which moon phases--you can check online to see which sign the moon happens to be traveling through, or purchase a Farmers Almanac (usually found in your local drugstore). Best of luck with your gardening!
