Now is the time!


Throughout the ages, practitioners of moon-phase farming, such as the Mayans, found out through trial and error the best times to sow and plant, to prune, to weed and to harvest for storage. They also treated stock for diseases, and mated, castrated and killed farm animals for meat at certain times of the month. I am constantly reading and researching more and more of the old techniques.


Using the time-honored practice of Moon gardening makes the best use of our time, and is for the best use of a wonderful resource that must last for thousands more generations after us. This resource is the land we live on!

 The Almanac now includes the perfect times to treat, catch, and care for all species, furred, feathers and finned.
