FLOWERDAYS AND BEANS

YOU ARE NOT TO PLANT BEANS DURING THE FLOWERDAYS. ( AGAIN
MY FATHER COULD NOT REMEMBER THE SPECIFIC TIME). MY GRANDFATHER
PLANTED A ROW OF BEANS DURING THE FLOWERDAYS AND ANOTHER AFTER THE
DAYS WERE PAST. THE ROW PLANTED DURING THE DAYS GREW WITH AN
ABUNDANCE OF BLOSSOMS BUT VERY FEW BEANS. THE ROW PLANTED AFTER
THE FLOWERDAYS GREW WITH FEW BLOSSOMS BUT WITH AN ABUNDANCE
OF BEANS.

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.
