Half Moon? What!? Why?
So many others do bimonthly newsletters on the Full and New Moon. They always get the attention. They always get the fandom. They always get the importance. The Half Moon, also called quarter moon, but when you look at it with your actual eyeballs it isn’t quarter, its half! (it’s a celestial pet peeve of mine) Half Dark. Half Light. And each switching sides every time. One time growing in light, the other time growing in dark. It isn’t the pause between the inhale and the exhale, it *is* the inhale and the exhale. It is the middle road.
It has been a long wait for the snow to leave but the wait is over!
And now it's time to transform the anxiety into action.
Repairing fences, moving trellises, finishing the high tunnel, seeding, moving seed flats, repairing the greenhouse, and a lot of heavy lifting.
It's go time now!
As the sap keeps rising, the leaves begin to unfurl, and the first flowers of the season spring up, the farmer dusts off their muscles and begins to harden their hands.
