Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
FreddyHeadey... T'ain't no theory. Ya don't plant until after the full moon in June round these here parts. Now, the moons are late this year so ya gotta watch the sky and the tree buds carefully. Yer best bet is watching fruit tree buds... maples and such, not so much. Twas -2C here this AM but the wind kept the frost down. Most farmers (in the backwoods) will plant around May 26, three days ahead of the next full moon but that is still a situation to watch carefully. Some crops can stand a slight frost... others, not so much.
