    I'm just wondering if anyone else on here is exposed to such things as planting when the "signs" are right or other wives tales or supersitions?

    On the ride in this afternoon, I was thinking of doing some seeding tomorrow. As I came in by moonlight, I was reminded of something I heard on the farm in my youth...planting in the "new" phase of the moon yeilds hardier plants. The moon is near full now.

    Do any of you believe in such things? Do any of you think it's all hogwash?

    Well, being that I'm the 31st person to view this thread, with no replies, I take it that it's all hogwash and not worth replying to....

    That's what I also believe. <G>

    I have the feeling that almost all wives tales of old started back in the day when things happened that the common folk just couldn't explain cause they didn't yet invent the science or technology to figure it out..

    Kinda like you know how the world is flat and you'll fall off the edge if you go to far...
