“Garden Planting Signs – By A.N.”

Pioneers and Progress, Alix Clive Historical Club, 1974

Mrs. Cora Nielsen planted her garden by the moon signs and, whether you believe it or not, she had beautiful gardens and house plants. Of course, too, it might be because she loved them.

This is her list of the signs she went by, “Plant beans in the crab, the 4th sign, or the full of the moon.  Peas the day following the new moon. I have never had a failure.  The time to slip and plant your flowers is the 6th sign, of Virgin. The rest of the garden, Scorpion, and on, down to the feet, so I am told.
