We just passed the Harvest Moon and autumnal equinox for the Northern Hemisphere comes on September 22. We hope that you have all your summer crops harvested and have been preparing your soil for fall crops because there is a lot of root veggies you can direct seeds.
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’s always best to try to plant with the coming rains which are in the forecast.
WHERE TO BUY
The Natural Gardener and Cultivate Holistic Supply will have bunching online transplants in September.
