As we are approaching the First Quarter and are in Waxing Crescent, it’s a good time to plant leafy greens especially with the upcoming rains. We recommend you start some seeds indoors if you have a plant light set-up. If you already have seeds planted, they can handle a freeze, but hold off on transplants until the freezing temps have passed.
Here is a list of leafy green plants that are recommended for transplanting or direct seeding. During the waxing of the moon (the period extending from the day the moon is new to the day it reaches its fullest point), the moon pulls moisture upwards. Seeds do well during this time because moisture is available at the surface of the soil. It’s always best to try to transplant and seed-in with the coming moisture, but hold off until after the last frost..
