Lunar sowing calendar for summer residents, gardeners and gardeners for 2018
Being engaged in gardening from a very distant time, a man noticed that certain conditions of nature, lunar cycles somehow affect the plants he grows.
By systematizing the accumulated knowledge, people have become more practical in their approach to the gardening process.
With the advent of the ability to leave their observations in the form of records, various tables of cultivation of garden and garden crops appeared.
Since these tables were confined to the phases of the moon, they became known as the lunar calendar.
Every year for gardeners and gardeners goes such a lunar calendar. It tells how best and when to carry out those or other works.
Focusing on such a calendar, the gardener can choose the right time for planting various plants, carrying out any preparatory and economic work.
The only thing that needs to be taken into account is that although such calendars show some accuracy, nevertheless, they are conditional and recommendatory. And to use them or not - your business.
Phases of the moon and their effect on plants
Before talking about the influence of the moon on plants, let us take a brief look at some astronomical data about the moon - this rather interesting and mysterious satellite of the Earth.
If someone does not remember or does not know, then determine the following phases of the moon:
Phase 1 is called New Moon. It is determined when the sharp edges of the moon "look" to the left.
Phase 2 - First quarter. The left half of the moon is dark and the right half is light
3 phase - Growing moon. During this period, 2/3 of the lunar disk surface is illuminated from right to left.
Phase 4 - Full Moon. The moon is fully lit. Often it hangs in the sky with a huge round nickle. This time, despite the bright beginning of the moon, is marked by the manifestation of dark forces.
Phase 5 - Waning Moon. When 2/3 of the surface of the moon is lit already, in contrast to phase 3, from left to right.
Phase 6 - Third Quarter. At the same time, the right surface of the moon is dark, and the left is light
Phase 7 - Falling month. During this period, the sharp edges of the moon are rejected or "look" to the left.
It is believed that the best time to carry out planting is the period of the growing and decreasing moon.
And on the growing moon it is best to plant those plants that grow up and form a fruit on the surface of the earth: eggplants, cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, various trees and shrubs, as well as melons and gourds.
On the waning moon is best planted plants that form roots, such as carrots, beets and potatoes.
On the new moon and the full moon, no work can be done.
