Gardening by the Moon is a great way to help plan your above and below ground crops. Here’s how it works:
- Plant flowers and vegetables that bear crops above ground during the light, or waxing, of the Moon: from the day the Moon is new to the day it is full.
- Plant flowering bulbs and vegetables that bear crops below ground during the dark, or waning, of the Moon: from the day after it is full to the day before it is new again.
In an effort to succeed with my veggie garden, I am faithfully following phases of the moon. Today is almost the darkest day and I hope my underground plants (onion and radish) will grow extremely well.
