“Shine on, shine on, harvest moon, up in the sky.” More than just a word in an old familiar tune, the harvest moon may hold the key to reaping the most bounty from your season’s work.Certainly, there are proven, scientific ways to know when to harvest. But for centuries, many people have used the phases of the moon as a sign for many farm and garden chores.A Quick PrimerThose who have never turned to an almanac may not be familiar with the signs and phases of the moon. So a quick primer is in order.First, there are 12 signs in a lunar month. They have the same names as the solar signs. So don’t confuse the two. Whereas a solar sign is active for around 30 days once each year, a lunar sign occurs once each month for a little less than two and a half days.The lunar signs are named for constellations as ancient people understood them and are correlated to a part of the body. For example, Aries (or the ram) relates to the head. Leo (the lion) relates to the heart.So when someone says the signs are in the feet, it means the moon is passing through the sign Pisces (the fishes).The signs are further grouped into masculine and feminine signs and also into groups of earth, fire, air and water. For instance, Libra (the scales, kidneys or reins) is a masculine sign and also an air sign.Barren, Fruitful SignsWith a couple of exceptions, signs that represent fire and air, which are all masculine, are barren signs — times for harvesting, clearing land, etc.Signs that represent earth and water, which are all feminine, are fruitful signs — times for planting. Virgo and Libra are the exceptions. Virgo is a barren sign and Libra a fruitful sign.The moon goes through its cycle in 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. During that time, the moon passes through four phases: new moon, first quarter, full moon and last quarter.From new moon to full moon, the moon is growing, or waxing. This is known as the light of the moon. From full moon to new moon, the moon is shrinking, or waning (the dark of the moon).Do It by the MoonSo what does this have to do with harvesting?For many, absolutely nothing. But for a declining segment of rural America, it’s the authority.The signs and phases best for harvest depend on the intended use of the crop. Harvesting crops to be stored without any type of processing is best done when the moon is waning and in a barren sign.Aquarius, Sagittarius or Aries are the weakest of the barren signs and preferred for such harvests. With air and fire signs, the produce is at its lowest water content and thus more suitable for storage. This is important for crops like potatoes and onions.Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are water signs. So fruit harvested under these signs will have a higher water content and won’t store as well.Harvesting for NowBut for crops that are to be used right away, the water and earth (fruitful) signs, along with a waxing moon, may be preferred because the fruit will be more plump and juicy. However, it may also make them bruise more easily.Produce may get ripe when the signs aren’t right. However, you can target its use based on what’s best for the sign you harvested under.For keeping and storage, harvesting under a barren sign is most important, no matter what the phase of the moon.Now, there may be no scientific basis for using such tools in gardening and farming. But just try to tell that to someone who’s lived by it for the past half-century. Traditionally, the “harvest moon” is the nearest full moon to the beginning of autumn — this year, Oct. 2. But for believers, it’s much more complex than that.

(Visited 124 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Got Awe? Go get some. It’s good.Millions of viewers of August 21’s solar eclipse were undoubtedly awestruck by the phenomenon. Maybe that’s why many of them came in the first place: to feel something wonderful that is lacking in many of our lives.Jo Marchant, writing for New Scientist, says that “awesome awe” is an emotion that gives us superpowers. Well, maybe not literally, but “Awe is so powerful it alters your sense of self, connects you with humanity and boosts your mind and body. And there’s a surprising way to get more of it,” he says: explore nature.Have you ever been stopped in your tracks by a stunning view, or gobsmacked by the vastness of the night sky? Have you been transported by soaring music, a grand scientific theory or a charismatic person? If so, you will understand US novelist John Steinbeck’s response to California’s giant redwood trees, which can soar more than a hundred metres towards the sky. “[They] leave a mark or create a vision that stays with you always,” he wrote. “From them comes silence and awe.”Philosophers and writers have long been fascinated by our response to the sublime, but until a few years ago, scientists had barely studied it. Now they are fast realising that Steinbeck was right about its profound effects. Feeling awestruck can dissolve our very sense of self, bringing a host of benefits from lowering stress and boosting creativity to making us nicer people.It would seem odd to expect evolution to produce a sense of awe. The Stuff Happens Law (aka, natural selection) is only concerned about reproduction. Emotions that bring pleasure, joy, and exuberant satisfaction are not on the to-do list for mutations.Reactions from viewers of the 1991 eclipse (see video on YouTube) all expressed awe, remarking how insignificant it made them feel in the majestic scheme of the universe. Most of them felt it was pretty lucky our planet is set up for that amazing ‘coincidence’ (see 7/06/17). One guy who had waited 35 years to see one said of the eclipse phenomenon, “It’s a gift of God.”We have a better way to get awe: Know your Creator! He is the one that set up the sun, moon, and earth just right so that we could have endless delight exploring the wonders he intelligently designed. Here’s a heads-up announcement: we’re working on an upgrade to the Creation Safaris website. (That’s an additional ministry of Master Plan Association that sponsors Creation-Evolution Headlines). Creation Safaris, an outdoor education ministry, is all about awe! In fact, it uses the word AWE as an acronym for Adventure, Worship and Education. Watch for further news as work progresses. Launch may be in October or November of this year.

Our team, as well as engineering consultants, have had a consistent presence at the site throughout the process to ensure a safe and timely return to full operations.” Related Items:#ingua, #MortonSalt Recommended for you Morton Salt plant in Inagua still out of operation Morton Salt plant in Inagua still out of operation
