Just as the moon pulls on our oceans, it also effects our soil. Some may consider phases of the moon and gardening to be folklore, but we are part of a huge ecosystem. In my head that’s enough to give the moon some thought.
According to Gardening By the Moon:
“After the full moon, as the moon wanes, the energy is drawing down. The gravitation pull is high, creating more moisture in the soil, but the moonlight is decreasing, putting energy into the roots. This is a favorable time for planting root crops, including beets, carrots, onions, potatoes, and peanuts. It is also good for perennials, biennials, bulbs and transplanting because of the active root growth.“
So go plant your spring bulbs today with the help of our Hunter’s moon!
