New Moon November 18th

Hello and welcome to a marvellous New Moon,

Today is a New Moon which begins a whole new cycle of movement of the Moon around us.
Today the Moon appears a little to the left of the Sun, and since the Sun is a bright hot ball of nuclear explosions… the Moon stays invisible to our eyes.
Over the coming 27 (and a bit) days,  the Moon travels all around us until it again comes home to the Sun.
This cycle has been used for thousands of years to govern times of rest, effort, growth and harvest.
New Moons are always a time to rest and prepare for the coming cycle. Ask yourself ….”what do I have planned for the garden and for life?
Over the last few weeks I have pruned at the right time for the big hedge to stay pruned for as long as possible, I have harvested (gooseberries) at a time perfect to extend shelf life, and I have planted at the perfect times to grow healthy and abundant tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, sweet corn, basil and parsley. I think if forgot a few but I am sure they don’t mind!
May  your coming month be as productive and abundant.


A gift from my garden
