2nd Weekend Of The Holiday Gardening Season

Gardening by the Moon Weekend To-Do

An idea as old as agriculture, based both folklore and superstition but there are scientific ideas to back it up.

Thanksgiving Weekend -  Enjoy family and friends.
  • Lunar Phase: Full Moon, Monday, November 30
  • Saturday-Sunday: Moon in the sign of Taurus - Plant seasonal color. 
    • Cyclamen, Violas, and Pansies or Primula make for a beautiful combination of colors that last until Easter.

Later in the Week

  • Green tomatoes can be ripened off the vine in a simple ripening chamber, any box with a lid. The tomatoes are placed on a layer of newspaper and stored in the garage. The naturally occurring ethylene gas turns the tomatoes red.
