We just passed the New Moon phase and are now approaching the First Quarter and are in Waxing Crescent. It’s a good time to plant warm season leafy greens and cover crops to protect the soil. 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. As things continue to heat up these next couple months, be sure to do weekly foliar sprays with liquid seaweed to provide plants with hormones and nutrients needed for heat stress and to prevent disease and pests.
