Planting by the sign of the moon

Postby Boss Hog » Mon Jan 19, 2009 10:04 pm

I have been planting by the moon all my life and I think it works .
Here are some dates to plant by, you may want to try it.
This is for VA, W VA, KY, OHIO, PA , MO, IL, IN KS, CO, UT, NV,MD and northern Ca
Sweet corn early, planting days 4/1-17 best moon days 4/1-9
Late planting days 7/7-21 best moon days 7/7 and 7/21
beets early 3/15-4/3 3/15-25
late 8/15-30 8/15-19
peas green 3/7-30 3/7-10 and 3/26-30
white taters 4/1-30 4/10-23
beans 4/15-30 4/24-29

It works well for me but I am an old fool I guess
