Gardening by the Moon

March 30, 2012


This last week has been very busy, but I did manage to get some gardening done, despite the chilly turn our weather has taken in Michigan.  This year I’m trying a new method to time my plantings, called gardening by the moon.  My Grandmother recommends it, and I trust her gardening advice.  To that end, […]
