Time to sow seeds

Moon planting isn’t going so well, I have been trying to stick to it and have got some things right. Last Sundays potato and spring onions seeds went in on the right day but basicly I’m just not organisated enough for it at the moment and trying to plant things on the right day is just meaning I’m not getting seeds sown.

Take last night as an example: I got home from work at about 6.30pm, Mon – Weds I work two jobs each day so by Weds I’m normally pretty tired. By the time I come in say hello to people and catch up on the days news with a cup of tea it is at least 7pm, then there are jobs to be done, feeding everyone, etc. then I have to get ready for work the next morning and MAKE myself be in bed by 10pm or I just can’t get up the next morning.

Last night I should have been sowing cauliflower and broccoli but I hadn’t managed to be organisated enought to have enought paper pots ready, or any compost, so it just didn’t happen. Tonight I should be leaf plants but I haven’t even had a look in my box to see what I could/should be planting so I doubts that that will happen either.

Given all this I think it’s going to be best if I just abandion moon planting for this year, and maybe just keep a note of what went in on what moon phase.  I have three days off this weekend and know I can get loads sown if I’m not restricting myself.

I went past the field that will have our allotments on on the way home and they have been ploughed and the plots started to be marked out, another reason I just want to get on with it now, there is so much I want to grow this year.

  1. Ack! i know what you mean. I’d love to do moon planting too; but I’m just happy to get the seeds in and the weeds out LOL!

    Hope you have a lovely weekend pottering in the garden.


  2. You are a month in front of me sowing and planting seeds. Our land is still too cold to sow anything. My Broad Bean seeds in the greenhouse are coming along quite well, but my potatoes are slow to chit.
    What difference does planting by the moon do? I’m trying to do no dig companion planting with deep beds in my veg garden. But it takes time to get it established.
    Have fun this weekend

    Planting by the moon is meant to help increase crops, no-one is completely sure how it works (or if there is, I haven’t found them) and some people say it doesn’t make a difference but there are also a lot f people who do say it makes a difference.

    If you do a goo search then this a fair amount of information about it including website with what to sow of different days, e.g. if it’s a root crop day, or a leaf crop day.

    I’m also trying some companion planting too, so far I’ve been mixing onion, carrots and garlic together.
