Today is another day of Farm Friend Friday with
Verde Farms and Dandelion House. I have been
visiting some of the ladies who have linked there
and I have already had a nice morning meeting,
really nice people and some really nice blogs.
If you have a chance go by and visit I am sure you
will be blessed.
It is Friday again. Unlike other Fridays my Easter
vacation starts today. Hooray!!! All it means really
is that I don't do school from 9 to 12 everyday.
I get to putter around without racing the clock.
This is all of the drip line that will be connected tomorrow.
My husband laid it out last night so that today it can
get warm in the sun and be more pliable.
There is a lesson in there isn't there? I just noticed it.
In order for me to be more pliable, I need to be warmed
by the Son. Without Him I am brittle, hard, and unbending.
Wow, what I love about gardening, little gems all around me.
So then I should be planting seeds this weekend.
I found this little blurb the other day in one of my old
" Plantin' Time"
Whut we hill people calls th' "dark of th' moon" is th'
time frum full moon to th' new---or th' shrinkin' of th' moon.
Th' other half of th' season, frum th' new moon to th' full, is
knowed as th' "light of th' moon".
Now plants thet grow underground, sech as 'taters, turnips,
onions, an' so forth had orta be planted in th' dark of th'
moon or they'll all "go to tops". Beans, peas, tomaters an'
sech, thet have their crop 'bove th' ground shud be planted
th' light of th' moon. Taters had orta be dug in the' light of th'
moon or they'll rot.
Beans shud't be planted till after tn' furst whipporwill hollers, an
shud be planted in th' mornin'---not th' evenin'.
Th' best plantin' time fer lettuce is 'bout February 14th. Cucumbers
shud be planted 'bout May1st, watermelons 'bout May 10th, and
turnips' bout July 25th.
My grandparents always planted that way, and
they always had better gardens than my folks who
thought the old ways were nuts. I have learned myself,
that some time old ways are better and I seem to get
better results with the old, time tested ways.
I was out taking pictures this morning and I looked down
in my flowerbed and this is what I saw.
Hobo kitty watching me.
I hope you have a lovely Friday Thanks once again
to the ladies at Verde Farms and Dandelion House for
a link up party.
