Jan 14-20 Transplant or Seed in Leafy Greens
We hope you had time to relax and wind down as we approached the New Moon. As we are approaching the First Quarter and are in Waxing Crescent, it’s a good time to plant leafy greens. 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 rains.
SEED-IN or TRANSPLANT
Now is also a time to plant fruit trees, graft & prune.
