Moon Cycles

New Moon to First Quarter

This is a good time to plant crops that you want for their leaves and flowers or for any part that doesn’t contain seeds, which is lettuce, cabbage, most herbs, and for annuals, which finish their growth cycle in a single season.

First Quarter to Full Moon

Plant annuals that you want for the parts that contain seeds, which are peas, beans, fruits, grain crops and some herbs.

Full Moon to Third Quarter

Anything that bears the part you plant to use below ground can be planted during this time, such as roots, tubers and bulbs. This is also a good time for pruning and for harvesting crops, especially fruit that you will store for more than a few days.

Third Quarter to New Moon

Do not plant or transplant during this time. This is a time for weeding, harvesting, drying, canning and preserving.
