At last I seem to have got on top of my own Calender!! All very well for me to type what we should all be doing, but quite another thing to get it done! Farmer's Markets start at 6am and shortly we shall have evening one's as well! That leaves me (like many of you I realise) with lunch hours (Well we do get 2hrs in France!) and Mondays which we take as our Sunday. So - All plants doing well, and yes I did get the broccoli planted out according to Calender and am staggered that flower seedlings that T & M said would take 10 days to a fortnight are up within the week!
So here is the Lunar Calender for 20th-27th May as I am away at Farmer's Market in Calvados next w/e.
20th May Root Day Keep cucumber frames open even at night now and sow beetroot and chicory outside now. Sow Winter leeks in frames.
21/22 May Flower Days In nursery beds sow cauliflower and broccoli . Sow annuals where they are to flower like alyssum/poppies/godetias.
23/24 May The moon is now in the constellation of Pisces and this is the time to sow all types of lettuce inc, batavia/rocket and mesclun. Sow cardoons where they are to crop and sow brussel sprouts and winter cabbage in a nursery bed.
25th May Same as yesterday but no gardening after 1.55pm as the moon is starting to descend from maximum height and will prove ineffective in its powers when it is on the turn (noeud)
26th May Fruit Day Renew sowings of courgettes/cucumbers and gherkins.
Now I'm off to transplant 32 tomatoes (They all came up!!! and I hate waste)
Do let me know how you are all getting on.
