We just passed the first quarter and the moon is now in waxing gibbous going into a full moon. Now is also a time to seed-in plants that fruit and seed like cantaloupe, pumpkins, squash, okra, and southern peas.

As always, it’s best to transplant and seed-in with coming rains.
DIRECT SEED OR TRANSPLANT
