>> Hi. A guy in my area who does a lot of gardening told me a few years
>> that he always plants by moon signs because the plants grow much
>> I also heard before that weeds and other unwanted plants are less
>> to grow back if weeding is done under other moon signs. I'd like to
>> of anyone's personal experience or of studies and the results. Is
>> info on this in the list archives? What I remember is that the water
>> signs and maybe earth signs as well as the air sign of Libra are good
>> times for planting and the other signs are good times for weeding.
>> anyone confirm or correct me? If the weather continues to be rainy
>> as it was this year, I probly won't be able to go by the moon signs
>> anyway, but I'd like to try, since it's a cheap method to possibly
>> yields, etc. Aloha. Lloyd
