While we get the greatest media exposure concerning our 2 year in advance weather predictions, the information we provide regarding planting (charts, special articles and videos), is what has the greatest impact on fans of the Farmers’ Almanac. As such. it is nice to hear from someone who uses the planting guide. Here is a comment we received last week worth sharing:
I just wanted to say, I am totally surprised. My grandparents and mother-in-law used to swear by planting by the moon. I have been starting my own plants for about 30 years now and I have never had plants not grow. This year I planted my tomatoes and eggplants and about a month later and they still had not done much growing. On a whim I looked at the date I planted them, compared them to the moon calendar in the Farmers’ Almanac; and can you believe it I planted all those seeds on a day that said bad planting day, do not plant anything on these days. I am a believer now and will be following the almanac from now on. Sincerely, Lisa
Over the years I have had many similar messages. Once, I received 5 large zucchinis. This gardener planted some on the correct day and others on the “wrong” day. Only the row planted on “correct” time took and she wanted to share her wealth with me. So many people are growing their own food that it is worth your time to engage our Planting By the Moon calendar. If you have an experience worth sharing, I’d love to hear your story.
