Winter Garden Planning for Summertime
Biodynamic Gardening Report 34—Jan. 9-15, 2015
We recorded this latest report at the Thursday Morro Bay farmers market for the first time in two weeks after the holiday interruption. We discuss the barren days across the past few weeks as well as several winter gardening activities such as making a good garden plan for the coming growing season.
Biodynamic gardening principles—some of the most ancient agricultural practices on the planet—require the farmer’s attention to moon phases and constellations to pursue the most effective gardening and farming practices on any given day in the month. San Luis Obispo County farmer Ralph Johnson of Jrjohnson Biodynamic Farms provides insight into how the moon’s phases affect gardening success.
