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!
