Last Weekly Report Before New 14-day Forecasts
Biodynamic Gardening Report 58—June 26-30, 2015
This episode is the last of the weekly reports. We’re switching to a 14-day forecast that starts and ends with the complete quarter phases of the moon. Two weeks of information forecasting the best days to garden will make it easier for gardeners to plan to take best advantage of the optimum days. In the coming weeks, we’ll begin publishing this forecast for gardening by the moon per the lunar calendar in 2-week sections. Video forthcoming!

On Friday, the moon is in Libra, an air sign which is moist and semi-fruitful. It’s a good time to plant fragrant flowers and herbs.
On Saturday and Sunday (June 27-28), the moon will be in Scorpio. It’s a water sign which is moist and very fruitful. Given that the moon is in the second quarter, it’s an especially good time to plant fruiting crops.
On Monday and Tuesday (June 29-30), the moon will be in Sagittarius, a fire sign which is dry and barren. No planting on these days unless you want to rot seeds.
The full moon begins Wednesday July 1 when the moon moves through the constellation of Capricorn. It’s an earth sign which is dry and productive. This is a good day to plant root crops.
