Had a frost last night... hopefully that will be the last one for the year. I hope the peaches are OK... they are in bloom right now. We will see. Lots of stuff is ready to go in the garden, it looks like things should be good by later this week. We are in a full moon cycle and the first and last frosts usually occur during a full moon. I don't believe in planting by the moon or any of that... but I have paid close attention over the years and a full moon in early May can often bring a frost. Same thing in October. We usually will miss the frost if the full moon occurs at the end of May or in September. It is crazy... I am not sure why that is, but it is... People often ask me if I plant by the moon. If I did that I would not be able to get anything done. I plant when the weather is conducive. If the conditions are right the plant will thrive.
