New moon seeds

I plant seeds at new moon, which happens to be tonight. The cycles of the moon are important for gardening: at new moon, the roots work extra hard, and at full moon the leaves are still photosynthesizing from the light of the moon. So it’s best to plant seeds at new moon, transplant plants at full moon.

I’ve planted some new things: jicama, purple cauliflower, purple broccoli, and some unusual greens which are a cross between broccoli and Chinese broccoli; I don’t even know what to expect yet.
