Be Inspired with the Moon Gardening Planting Days this June 2016

Hello and welcome to June,

The change of season has woken up parts of the garden and put others to sleep. No matter where you live there is always something to plant, to treat, to prune or to harvest.

For your planting days simple scroll down, but for the complete (and I like to think) inspiring newsletter, please clink on the link.

May your winter be a time of joy and natural abundance.

Ancient Moon Gardening

Gazing out the window I can see the veggie patch and last month I tidied up old stalks and dug over sections. Who needs a gym membership when you have a garden?

I also pulled out the last of the basil and for the first time I made my own Pesto. Don’t tell anyone but I actually prefer the shop bought one! My recipe clearly needs improvement but at least I can add what I have made into casseroles.

I finished planting some climbers, some shrubs and had a severe talking to the Nandina in hopes that it would improve on its red coloring. Buy cheap market unknown varieties..…repent at leisure!

How does your garden of life grow?
