September Gardening by the Moon

Below is the September Gardening by The Moon Calendar from Farmers’ Almanac. In italics will be my personal plan. I’m in zone 7b for plant hardiness. One of my resources for when to plant is this website Gardenate.

September 2013
7th-8th Good Days For Planting Peas, Beans, Tomatoes, Peppers, And Other Aboveground Crops In Southern Florida, Texas, And California. Excellent For Sowing Grains, Hay, And Forage Crops. Plant Flowers. (Spread some saved flower seed and plant some peas)
9th-10th Excellent Time For Planting Aboveground Crops That Can Be Planted Now, Including Leafy Vegetables, Which Will Do Well. Start Seedbeds. (Plant some salad green seeds in vertical pallet garden)
11th-12th Clear Fencerows, Woodlots And Fields, But Do No Planting. (clear out blackberries along the fence and cut back vines, pick up old fruit, wrap fruit trees with cardboard)
13th-14th Any Aboveground Crops That Can Be Planted Now Will Do Well. (look through seeds and plant any that will work)
15th-17th Poor Planting Days. Kill Plant Pests. (remove snails from raised beds, cut back horseradish greens, harvest some stevia)
18th-19th Favorable Planting Days: First Day For Aboveground Crops. Last Day For Root Crops And Also Good For Transplanting. All Days Fine For Planting Vine Crops. (plant some garlic and beets? harvest radishes, carrots, and beets that are ready, harvest some horseradish and make horseradish sauce)
20th-22nd Seeds Planted Now Will Grow Poorly And Yield Little. (pick up old fruit, trim calendula, spread compost as needed)
23rd-24th Good Days For Planting Root Crops. Good Days For Transplanting. (plant some carrots and radishes)
25th-27th Seeds Planted Now Tend To Rot In The Ground. (clean up old fruit, check cardboard around trees, trim flowers)
28th-29th Fine Planting Days For Fall Potatoes, Turnips, Onions, Carrots, Beets, And Other Root Crops. Also Plant Seedbeds And Flower Gardens. Good Days For Transplanting. (plant some flower seeds and root seeds)
