WHEN TO PLANT YOUR CROPS

THE GENERAL CONSENSUS, ACCORDING TO MY FATHER, IS THAT THERE
IS A CERTAIN TIME OF THE MOON WHEN IT IS FAVORABLE TO PLANT
YOUR CROPS SO THAT THEY WILL BE PRODUCTIVE. IF YOU DO NOT PLANT
AT THIS TIME THE CROPS WILL NOT BE PRODUCTIVE. MY FATHER WAS
UNABLE TO RECALL THE EXACT TIME OF THE MOON.
