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.

        ….Enjoy family and friends 

Later in the Week

  • Monday/Thursday: Moon in the sign of Cancer/Leo -    Harvest weed, cultivate, control pests, plant for root growth  and divide perennials
    • Green tomatoes can be ripened off the vine in a simple ripening chamber. The tomatoes are placed in a box with a lid, and the naturally occurring ethylene gas turns them red. 
Other Things To-do
  •  A late fall application of Copper Sulphate is very important in controlling Peach Leaf Curl and 'Shot-Hole' Fungus on Peaches, Nectarines, and Plums.
