This is the last day of the lunar cycle which began on November 12th.

Lazy Housewife Climbing Beans

Lazy Housewife Climbing Beans

Each day during the month activities in the garden have been recorded.

It is interesting note the growth and development of plants during that period

The first flower of the  Lazy house wife beans appeared  on the 13th day of the cycle and by the 24th day the tiny beans had formed. Today  they are ready for harvesting.

The cos lettuce were transplanted on the 7th day of the cycle and today the leaves are ready to pick.

Tomorrow marks the first day of the next lunar cycle when the new moon rises and in the moon garden we focus on sowing green leafy vegetables once more.

I organize activities in the garden by following the phases of the moon as it is a simple method which

  • maintains discipline
  • provides for easy planning currently and looking forward
  • enables simple strategies  for record keeping
  • keeps one focused not only in the garden but with in the environment
