ASCENDING MOON IN CANCER according to the Biodynamic Calendar – good for sowing leaf crops.
As we are now on the verge of summer, I made a fine seedbed outside in one of my raised vegetable beds. In it I sowed savoy January King + Chieftain, sowed red cabbage Red Express, sowed Brussels sprouts Evesham Special + Fill Basket.
It seems early, but I have found over the last 40 years or so, that it is important to sow these winter crops around 6 months early to have decent crops. They need to be well developed before the cold weather of late autumn starts to descend. Sowing these crops needs to be in late October – early November in the southern hemisphere and May – early June in the northern hemisphere. They will be ready to plant out into their permanent positions after about 4 weeks when they are about 150mm (6in) high.
