Up here in the mountains farmers work by the moon. If you want a plant to get bushier you prune it on the Full Moon; If you want it to shoot up straight again you prune it on the New Moon.
The weather only seems to change on a Full or a New Moon. Right now we are having some very rainy days. We will have to wait for the Full Moon before things change, fortunately that is only a day away.
Today, I learned something entirely new. Queen bees lay their eggs on a New Moon and flowers are most full of nectar on the Crescent Moon.
