moon

Postby DanR » Sun Apr 05, 2009 5:15 am

I went to an AG class yesterday and one of the topics was planting and harvesting by the phases of the moon. It was very interesting. Just wondering how many of you plant by the moon and why.

I try to plant by the moon when possible. Sometimes the weather won't co-operate. The old folks tried to do the same. Others don't believe in it at all. I guess it came from the Bible where it says there is a time to plant and a time to harvest what you have planted. I try to plant by the signs, cause I need all the help I can get.
