Starting the Planting In Spite of the Weather

First Quarter Moon in Aries
Jupiter Retrograde
Celtic Tree Month of Birch
Sunny and cold

Yes, it is far too early to plant, and it is the moon sign of Aries, not necessarily the best planting sign. But I kept some seeds from Macintosh apples I bought at the store, and they sprouted in water, so I stuck them in little pots and we’ll see.

My many lemon plants and my lime and tangerine plants all came from seeds of the store-bought fruit. Why not give it a go?

Hopefully, something will come up!

Meanwhile, I’m trying to figure out the ratio between the plants I want for my perfect fantasy garden, the plants I need because I use them most, and what I can afford for spring!

    Good luck with the early plantings.
    In my fantasy garden, I have a variety of fruit trees: grape, apple, peach, mango, avocado, lemon, orange, naartjie, nectarine, maybe even banana. They are all strong and healthy and bearing fruit. In my real garden, some of these fruit trees are still little bushes really, others have yet to be planted, and I don’t yet get any fruit from my garden. But, I can wait to make portions of this fantasy garden a reality.
