Even with finally getting this post done I'm still behind on my blog. I have another video on ice which should have been put up with a new post last week, but I only just got my post from 3 weeks ago done.

Right in My Own Backyard

A bit of replanting
First Harvest
My plants were made for walking

No. 1 in Foodbuzz:
Chuckwagon Apple Fritters


Other Articles: Gardening with the Phases of the Moon

This was quite an interesting article. It talks about how the different cycles of the moon affect the moisture levels in your soil. I had heard of people planting by the moon, but I never got the connection. I might give this a try next year.

I full well buy into the concept of lunar gardening technically their proposals sound logical. Have always picked up calendars, almanacs and even bought the supposed best most correct one online a couple times. Then the wheels fell off that wagon. The dates for things quite diverse can be found in them such as cutting hair both for growth and to retard growth. That too is well and good but the different calendars etc seldom agree on any dates of whatever scheme. So I confronted a lady who sold me one online lunar calendar. Her answer was the others did not take into account recent corrections in dates due to different calendar versions but hers was correct. I doubt that the farmers almanac and all the pharmacy calendars are all stupid but they do not agree on basically anything. So I have ignored them all to just look up into the night sky and read my own moon. What say you.

Well, I have no experience in this arena, so I can't really say anything about the voracity of any one given calendar.

Lunar planting was something I had only heard about in the past, and this was the first ever article I've read about it. I had no idea that there were calendars to buy etc. I just thought it was as you say; just read the moon.
