May The Force Be With You

Since the moon is full today, we should all be sowing seeds of plants that grow above ground: lettuces, peas, broccoli, cabbage, etc. April's full moon is known as the "Seed Moon." If you would like to read more about moon planting, this is a good start: This is a basic guide for moon gardening, from Keith's Moon Planting page:
Moon Planting Rule
New Moon To Full Moon: Sow, Transplant, bud and graft.
Full Moon To New Moon: Plow, Cultivate, weed and reap.
New Moon To First Quarter: Good for Planting above-ground crops with outside seeds, flowering annuals.

and may the Force be with you!!
