Getting Ready For Gardening

Yes, it is winter but we are going to start planning now.
We covered how to build a raised bed vegetable garden blog on August 9th.
No worries If you don’t have your Garden plot prepared you can start today.
First on the list of vegetable gardening.

THE MOON

Many gardeners have relied on the moon to tell them when to plant what.
It goes like this….plant above ground crops in the light of the moon.
Which is the day of the new moon to the day of the full moon.
Root crops have to be planted by the dark of the moon which is the day after the full moon
and the day before the new moon.

PLANT WHAT

Try these vegetables from seed this month

  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Head lettuce

HERBS

Rosemary is a cold hardy shrub ( sometimes) that is an herb used for many purposes.
Mourners would throw Rosemary into graves as a symbol of remembrance for the dead.
Now scientific evidence suggests that rosemary in-fact stimulates the memory center.
MOST OF ALL DON’T BE AFRAID OF FAILURE.

Plant your seeds in a row
One for the pheasant one for the crow,
One to rot and one to grow
Or
Sow seed generously one for the rook, one for the crow
One to die and one to grow.

 

Happy Gardening
