Yesterday was spent in the garden planting & seeding with a Virgo moon in mind. An earth sign, strong and grounded (like most Virgos I know), planting under this moon is said to nuture healthy roots.
(My favorite Virgo:)
I'm impressed by the growth of last year's herbs: self-seeded chamomile, leafy yarrow, healing comfrey nestled inbetween bachelor buttons (also from last summer).....and GARLIC!
Today the moon moves into the airy sign of Libra. Flower and herb seeds will go in the ground: chamomile, sea holly, hyssop, pyrethrum, valerian.
I'm also still catching up on my vegetable plantings. Peas, potatoes, chives, nasturtiums, lettuce, parsley will be seeded today too along with a couple of flats of flowers to start inside under the growlights. Although looking again at this (long) list, I'm not feeling so sure all of it will get done. The tendency for distraction in the garden is probable....I always get lost in the view.
