Be inspired with Moon Gardening Planting dates March 2017

Hello and Welcome to March,

Gazing out the window I can see the veggie patch and this month the sweet corn has been giving its abundant crops. I love the rustle of stalks as they shimmer in the wind. The tomatoes have moved into overdrive to make up for a late season and I think I have had quite enough of cucumbers! The last heat wave halted the beans but they are full of more flowers and small beans again. The break has done us all good as the week’s respite has meant I am ready to eat beans again! The lemons and grapefruit gave of their last fruit, but the next season crops is already developing.

The Autumn issue of the Ancient Moon Gardening Almanac and the Easy Planning Calendar has been sent out to all the wonderful members. May your gardens grow great!

Watching nature and plants grow is a metaphor for life. This month I learnt that even if it looks like nothing much will come of it and you don’t gather in what you expected….keep giving it attention and be patient.

Ancient Moon Gardening

Gazing out the window I can see the veggie patch and this month I have enjoyed feasting on broad beans. I love releasing them from the their feathery soft beds….such a joy to touch. Once lightly steamed, I toss them with olive oil and dare I say it…. salt. I probably eat far too much salt!

Since we last spoke the tomatoes fairly exploded out the ground and nearly 3 times a week I needed to add another stake! What amused me was that precisely when the cold winds stopped at the start of December, hidden seedlings from the old compost heap also exploded out of the ground… they knew precisely the best time to come out and play. It also shows me I am not generating enough heat in the compost bins! Hmmm maybe I did not alternate green layers with brown layers regularly enough. PS. Brown layers can also be paper waste and documents you do not want out in the rubbish bins.

The apple is growing in leaps and bounds but the plum has not set a single flower.

The Three Sisters (corn beans and pumpkins), are growing well and next year I will plant the sweet corn a couple of weeks ahead of the beans. For a while there I was scared to enter the patch and stand still for too long in fear that the beans would twine around me and tie me down!

The new strawberries that I moved and were not supposed to fruit… are about to. Ahh.. I love the constant surprises that a garden brings.
