Hello and Welcome to August,
We now enter the last month of winter and already the buds are fat and luscious with spring promise. Here is the link to the complete Earth Moon and Stars newsletter …. 2015 8 August Earth Moon and Stars with Kerry Galea print version
but if you just want a quick peek at the Moon planting, here it is….
Gazing out the window I can see the veggie patch and this month the lemon and grapefruit has started producing enmass, the broad beans are brilliant, whilst the recent frosts have slowed down everything else. The spinach under shelter is still producing well and the chooks have found the parsley to be tasty!
The yellow and orange Chinese Lanterns hanging over the fence look fantastic and bloom beautifully in this cold weather.
Over the last few weeks I pruned the hedge at a time perfect to prune to minimize growth and I pruned the roses at a time perfect to increase growth and I must admit I am looking forward to spring warmth! Kerry 🙂
