With the moon in the last quarter, in the sign of Scorpio on March 13th and 14th, it is an excellent time to start building a new compost heap.
A quick note, that we are entering into the First Moon Phase, starting in Aries, then moving into Taurus. What this means for you, is that Monday and Tuesday are good days to start fruiting plants … have you started your tomatoes yet ? Monday and Tuesday would be good for this.
Wed, Thurs & Friday when we move into Taurus, is a good time to get some root veggies planted out in your cold frames !
What do we start now … tomatoes if you want to set them out in walls-o-water to get a jump on the warm weather (although this year we many not need to 🙂 We also start marigolds from seed, because they love hot weather and take a bit of time to get big, starting them now will give you a longer marigold season.
We have four days left in our waning 3rd quarter moon phase, so besides being harvest time, this is a good time to apply 501 Horn Silica prep for your young seedlings if you have your autumn and winter garden in.
