For as long as I can remember, my Dad has received The Old Farmer’s Almanac in his stocking every Christmas. It has been a staple in my life, for my whole life – thus far. It has been in publication for 229 years!
This little book is a treasure trove of information. It has weather forecasts, gardening and planting schedules (based on your region), astronomical tables, tides, holidays, eclipses, and all kinds of other cool and useful information. If you don’t have one, I highly recommend you get one.
In the meantime, I’ve put together a little table for you. Honestly, I put it together for myself, but I thought I would share it here for my fellow gardeners in Region 1 of the United States.
There is a large table for planting your garden by the moon’s phases. I condensed it to just my region and just the plants I want to grow this year. I can print out this smaller list and put it near my gardening supplies instead of having to flip through the book to find the information.
There are early planting dates and late dates – for a spring or fall garden.
Keep in mind this is not a complete list, the book has 20 other vegetables that I either don’t like, or don’t want to grow this year. Also, note these dates are for Region 1 – the southern United States.
