This Week's Post: An Updated 'Moon Phase' Page for your Garden Book (repost)

It's still planting season! 

If you own a copy of Fred’s Gardening: An Ecological Approach, the page with the moon phase table (p. 72) is nearly out of date.  The original page covered 2009-2014.  A revision in 2011 provided tables for 2011 – 2016.  The updated page (below) covers 2016 – 2021. 

Feel free to download the page (right-click to save) and paste it over the old one to make the only time-sensitive aspect of the book useful for another six years.

Gardening: The Garden Book

Whether you are planning your garden, starting seeds in trays on the windowsill, building raised beds and compost bins, or physically staking out the garden, you will find useful information in my gardening handbook-- Gardening: An Ecological ApproachReaders appreciate the book both for its wealth of gardening information and for its aesthetic value. The book is hand-lettered and features detailed pen-and-ink illustrations throughout. Its unique approach includes valuable information on ecology and environment applied to gardening as well as a hands-on guide to preparing soil,  planning a garden, starting seeds, and caring for specific crops.
