We just passed the Full Worm Moon, which was originally thought to refer to the earthworms that appear as the soil warms in spring. This invites birds to feed—a true sign of spring!
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 is still a good time to plant trees, shrubs and perennials. It’s always best to try to transplant and seed-in with the coming rains, which is in the forecast.
