Planting by the Signs
This year I planted my seeds by, "the signs". Meaning I used the phases of the moon to select the best time that would promote growth in my plants.
If the moon can affect the tides, then why not the growth of plants? I would like to admit that I have been diligent about using the signs each year, but that would not be the truth.
But, I am getting there.
I used, The Old Farmer's Almanac's charts ,to select the days that were best for planting. If you are familiar with, "the signs", you know that there are signs for just about everything. That would include cutting hair, mowing the yard, and pulling teeth.
While some modern folks tend to regard this information as superstition, I know my grandparents relied on it to yield the best crops possible. Back then there wasn't just trotting to the grocery store when the garden didn't produce well.
So far, I have heirloom tomatoes, watermelon, cantaloupe, lemon squash, and cucumbers sprouting along.
Anyone else out there planting by the signs?
