This is from one of my old books.....
Plant taters on dark and old of the moon (last quarter)---you will have less vines and more taters..
Plant taters on the light of the moon, you will have more vine, and less taters..
If you plant taters in the feet, little nubs will be all over the taters...
Best time to plant...dark night in March ( March 17)
Plant all things which yield above the ground during increase or growing of moon,
Root crops which grow below ground, plant when the moon is decreasing or darkening.
Most harvesting should be done when the moon is growing old....keeps better.
Cut hay in the old of moon. Will dry quicker, prevents mold or mildew..
Cut wood in the old of the moon, dries quicker. If cut in the new of the moon, it will spew on the fire.
If you dig a hole on the new moon, you will have dirt to throw away...dig on the old of the moon, and you won't have enough to fill the hole back. If you dig post holes on the growing of the moon, they will be loose all the time and never settle. Dig post holes on the old moon, they will settle tight, just like they grew there.
Plant corn in the arms, it won't grow high and will hang over. Plant corn in Leo, and you will have a hard stalk, little nubber ears. Plant in Taurus, it with withstand drought. Plant beans in bowels, and they will rot.
Casturate pigs when the sign is in the feet...less bleeding and soreness. and no infection.
Have tonsils out when signs are in knees or feet. Cut you hair when moon is decreasing, it won't grow back as fast.
Never kill hogs on the new of the moon, the meat will be watery.
Never plant in barren signs. Frost on the light of the moon will not kill.
When oak or mesquite buds are out, killing frosts are over.
Ecclesiastes tells us there is a time to plant, and a time to harvest.
Just be sure to plant in the dirt......
