Anyone garden by the 'signs'?

Many people in my area plant by the moon phases. My grandmother planted by the 'signs', canned, baked, etc by the signs. I also follow this tradition. My husband went against my wishes a few times and had very poor to bad results. Anyone else do this?
Some people weave burlap into the fabric of our lives, and some weave gold thread. Both contribute to make the whole picture beautiful and unique.

There's a thread somewhere in THG about planting by phases of the moon.

There's also a whole school of gardening thought--the BioDynamic approach--which uses phases of the moon as an integral component, as integral as water and soil.

Maybe these bits of info will help you find like-minded folks!

Planting by Signs.

Mother and Daddy planted by signs. Beans were planted when the signs were in the Twins. There was something about planting potatoes on the dark of the moon?

Another subject:
Do any of you grow Garlic? We already harvested our's and half we brushed the dirt off, cut off the beards and the rest we left dirty and beards intact. I just read that Garlic should be taken out of the sun immediately after being harvested.
We grew a beautiful batch this year. :lol:
We are the caretakers of this planet. Let's do the job well.
