2010 Lunar Planting Dates

Good morning, Pumpkinistas!

A quick consultation of my 2010 The Old Farmer's Almanac by Robert B. Thomas, http://www.almanac.com/moon/full reveals the following planting dates for pumpkins by the Moon's phase(s):

Favorable planting dates:

April 23-28, 2010

May 13-27, 2010

June 12-26, 2010

The Old Farmer's Almanac also recommends planting vegetables that bear crops above ground, like pumpkins, from the waxing of the Moon, to the day it is full.

The full moons for April-June 2010 and their names, follow:

Wednesday, April 28, 2010, 8:18 a.m., Pink Moon

Thursday, May 27, 2010, 7:07 p.m., Flower Moon

Saturday, June 26, 2010, 7:31 a.m., Strawberry Moon

So, it's time to start thinking about your planting preparations!
