Moon Gardening for May 2008

The New Moon at 10:19pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time) on Monday 5 May sees the start of the lunar planting cycle for this month. Leafy annuals (eg, broccoli, spinach, cabbages) can be sown and seedlings can be transplanted from 10:19am to 9:20pm Tuesday 6 May and from 9:03pm Thursday 8 May to 11:10pm Saturday 10 May.

The First Quarter will occur at 1:45pm Monday 12 May. Fruiting annuals (eg, beans, peas, corn) can be sown and seedlings can be transplanted between 1:46pm Thursday 15 May and 12:12am Tuesday 20 May.

The Full Moon will occur at 12:12pm on Tuesday 20 May, so remember to put your crystals out overnight to recharge. Given that the full moon is occurring near midday, I would probably choose the Monday night during the waxing moon, rather than the Tuesday night when the moon will have started to wane, to recharge your little friends.

Root crops (eg, carrots, beets, potatoes, turnips) can be sown between 1:55am Friday 23 May and 1:53pm Sunday 25 May.

The Last Quarter wil be at 12:57pm Wednesday 28 May and the New Moon will occur at 5:24am Wednesday 4 June. Between these times, weed your garden and make compost.

Happy gardening!

love and light
