"Don't plant seed too soon,
Consult the moon."
~ Nicholas Culpepper
Snow Crust Moon
"If you with flowers would stick the pregnant earth
Mark well the moon proportions to their birth,
For earth the silent midnight green obeys
And waits her course, who clad in silver rays
The eternal round of time and seasons guides."
(The English Gardener)
