We just passed the Sturgeon Moon, other names include the Fruit Moon, Grain Moon and the Green Corn Moon.
We are now going into a waning period of the Moon—from the day after it is full to the day before it is new again. As the moonlight decreases night by night, plants are encouraged to grow roots, tubers, and bulbs. It’s always best to try to plant with the coming rains which are in the forecast.
