Moon Planting, Farming and Gardening

Moon Planting, Farming and Gardening

Moon Farming is as old as farming itself, the Celts, American Indians and most Early Farmers used it. Ask a Farmer if he Plants seed and Harvests by the Moon and you may be surprised. No we don't get out howling at the Moon but simply follow a Moon Calendar. Are there any other Moon Gardeners out there and what has been the best thing about it for you? Please share.

Yes Christa, that's correct.

So let me see if I have got it right? The new moon is at 4pm 9th Oct up to the 16th. So can we do the things suggested in gardening by the moon, every time it is a new moon time.

Hi Christa, you could use a calendar from another year so long as it is the same month and you would have to check the Moon times. Also you have to take into account where the original was done so as you can adjust for day light saving and climate zone for particular fruits and vegies. Hope this makes sence.

Really though, as long as you use the same months you wouldn't go far wrong.

Hello Lunar gardeners, I have been lucky to be able to read Elaine's Biodynamic magazines. Thanks to both Elaines. 

They are very informative reading and I noticed that each mag has details on what to do when.  Do the moon cycles repeat in time, e.g. is year 2000 same as 2018.  Does anyone know?

So sorry to leave those who use the Moon Calendar waiting. I will be posting a calendar for 2017 when I am home from hospital. At this stage I am to have an operation on the 11th after I finish a very big dose of strong Penicillin, and if that goes OK I will be home a couple of days later.

I think once you get into the routine things start to fall into place, I’m sure in a few months things will start to even out.

Thanks Dianne, I look forward to next months calander.

So Good to see that you are using the Moon Planting Guide. As soon as I get home from Tassie I will get my B.... into gear and get the April one ready I won't keep you waiting too long as we will be leaving this Magical Place with the Autumn Colours and big Cabbage Roses tomorrow night.

Yes, I sowed my beetroots and carrots on the weekend :) It is a bit of patience indeed haha but gets those less fun tasks done! Dianne, I'm looking forward to the new April installment :)

Comment by Jacqui on March 30, 2016 at 12:09

Ok Dianne looks like I have to get my beetroot in today (lucky I have them soaking) as next week is a chore week, won’t be able to play with any babies. I think next cycle is the true test of patience, I tell my athletes that they have to get into the zone, be one with their event, so I guess it’s time I practised what I preach.
