Tipper, author of Blind Pig and the Acorn, has rallyed up a group of gardeners to assist her in an experiment she’s conducting.
The experiment is to determine if planting under the sign really makes a difference.
The first phase of the experiment is to plant corn on the predicted day to plant for the best harvest. Under the sign of Cancer/Crab. With the best day being June 23rd.
Yesterday, after tilling up a spot, or should I say retilling up a spot.
The spot where my strawberries were to be growing.
Did I tell you that not one of my strawberry plants survived? Or even came up?
Never again will I buy those packaged dormant strawberry plants.
From now on, I will be buying those plants in pots that are already growing.
Anyway, back to the experiment.
I planted my corn on June 23rd.
See those little pink things all in a row?
That’s the seeds, supplied by Tipper, for the experiment.
Next, we’ll be planting in the sign that is the least favorable time to plant.
