image Planting by the Moon

I went to a talk recently, at my local Garden and Pet Centre (in Caloundra, for the locals), and the speaker was Ann from The Micro Gardener.

Her link is https://themicrogardener.com/

Ann reminded me of the Moon Planting Guide, which has us planting root crops on the Full Moon and leafy ones on the New Moon.

I had deliberately kept one garden for some winter (ha ha, this is Queensland) root crops and since the full moon is officially tomorrow, I went ahead with the planting today.

Follow-up photos will come, so remind me if you haven’t seen them.

It’s a fairly busy garden with main rows of carrot and beetroot. Small interplanted spring onions and radishes backed by the snow peas along the back.

A healthy garden mix and one we’ll enjoy eating. But let’s not get too far ahead.

Wishing you JOY in your world.
