I will be gardening by the moon phases today I am doing a few red potatoes.
March 21 - 22 is Root Crops, example Horseradish, Sweet potato
I started by buying 30 bags of top soil bout $40.00 worth. I laid them double wide around one side of the garden. the photo to the right shows how you can put them in fount of your flowers and hide the bags with mulch later.
Then I cut an x in the bottom of the bag and flipped it over.
I cut an x and a square in the top and mixed in cow manure and peat moss. I place the potato 1 per a bag and pulled the plastic back up around it. so It will not be fully exposed to the elements. I will place mulch over the bags and a plastic hoop house to protect it from frost for now. I will show more tomorrow. as the 23 - 25 of march is Flower crops, e.g. beans, peas for moon gardening. I will plant broccoli . 4-6 seed per a bag.
You can grow most any thing that is not a deep root crop this way. Corn is one that need deeper roots. but if you work the dirt below the bag and open the split under the bag for the roots to go deeper any thing can be grown this way.
Planting by the MoonPotatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, parsnips, radishes and other root crops Moon in Taurus (best results) or moon in Capricorn (good results) Waning moon when moon is in Taurus or Capricorn
