Above Ground Crops
The moon's effect on plants that produce their yields above the ground.

Plant veggies that produce their bounty above the ground during the moon's 2nd quarter for a robust crop and good growing season.

2nd Quarter - Moon PhaseAbove ground vegetables should be planted while the moon is waxing or in the second quarter. This is the time when the moon phases are advancing from the new moon to the full moon and growing brighter or waxing. It is believed that the growing influence of the moon, during this period, promotes germination and above ground growth.

Above ground crops are the most abundant plants to occur in nature. Most home gardens have a majority of above ground plants. The care and maintenance of them requires an understanding of each individual species and their growth requirements.
