Most vegetable plants need almost 100 perfect sunny days to produce to their fullest potential. With this in mind, this might be the perfect time, if not final chance, to start your most valuable food crops from seed. These plants thrive best in full sun. It takes a lot of water for these plants to produce succulent vegetables. They take more nutrients from the soil than other plants. They need lots of room to grow, the more room the more food.
Don't let this seem overwhelming if you are considering a first time garden. Of the vegetables to be planted in this moon phase, I suggest growing peppers and tomatoes. They are easy to grow, produce abundantly and are essential for nutrition. They are can easily be preserved for later too.
It is still too early to buy vegetable plant starts at the store. This moon phase comes next month and when I will be transplanting my seedlings to the garden you can plant your plants from the store.
I found a wonderful planting by the moon posting at "good stuff nw".
