Re: 2006 Calendar--and gardening by the moon....

Here, potatoes are "supposed" to be planted before St. Patrick's day, and the rest of the garden by Good Friday.

Nevermind that the ground can be snowed under in February, and we can have a frost after Easter many years.
Still, the old timers had bountiful gardens.

I used to keep a calendar on the computer, but it's too easy to lose it to a crash, or a new computer doesn't support the old format (grrr). Now we keep a calendar on yahoo, too, just in case. It's really useful when we're out of town, too.

My dad always planted by the moon. Potatoes HAD to be planted before Good
Friday, too. He ALWAYS had a magnificent food garden with enough produce to
take care of hungry critters and envious neighbors and for momma to can to
get us through the winter!

As for calendars, well, we'll certainly have a Zelda calendar. (I know you
are all shocked and amazed that I would have a bulldog calendar, but there
you go.) Our other calendar is on the computer. It takes up so much less
space that way.
